The long-awaited (am I fooling myself? It may be long-forgotten, except for the two or three guys who have been ever-hopeful in their inquiries about this) 2006 Book of the Year Awards Part Two are now up, posted as a January column over at the Hearts & Minds webpage.
Please, please, please check it out, reading my crazy categories and very astute picks. A-hem. Seriously, some truly great books have come out in the last year, and we are thrilled to plug a few here. If you didn’t read Part One, I’ve actually tweaked that list just a bit (added two more in the always popular “Books I Loved To Hate” category.) So check the December Book Review article for that, and the new January article for Part Two. I wish our awards were known far and wide, not for our sake, really, but so that these good books could be more widely known, honored, considered. There are others, to be sure. What would you pick??
Thanks very much. Happy reading!
