A deceptively easy question for this week (easy to ask but possibly hard to answer): What are/were your favorite book(s) of the year? (Bonus points if you know how many books you read.)

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  10. I achieved the goal of reading 100 books this year, finishing with 107. But I’m still pondering at my favorite books at this moment. I try not to go over my notes and journals, just trying to see what books jump at me when I reflect.

  15. I just posted mine today:

    I read 60 books and listened to 18 audiobooks.

  16. The books I read this year are all on the sidebar of my blog – at least I think they all made it there. http://wearflyingnow.blogspot.com. My favorite books this year were my annual reading of “Pride & Prejudice” by Jane Austen; “On The Edge: My Story” by Richard Hammond; “Testament of Youth” by Vera Brittain; “A Rose for the Crown” by Anne Easter Smith; “The Maid of Fairbourne Hall” by Julie Klassen; and, last but not least “Overseas” written by my good friend, Beatriz Williams. All in all I read 50 books this year.
