The Books of 2017

by lesliedinaberg on January 11, 2018

So many books, so little time—part 11. My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the 11th year we’ve done this. My favorite books of 2017 were probably The Mothers, by Britt Bennett; Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; Commonwealth by Ann Patchett; Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman; […]

The Books of 2016

by lesliedinaberg on January 7, 2017

So many books, so little time—part ten. My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the tenth year we’ve done this. My favorite books of 2016 were probably You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott, a mystery-thriller set in the world of women’s gymnastics; Eight Hundred Grapes by […]

The Books of 2014

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2015

So many books, so little time—part eight. My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the eighth year we’ve done this. My favorite books of 2014 were probably One More Thing by B.J. Novak, The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, and My Latest Grievance by Eleanor Lipman. All are fiction […]

The Books of 2013

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time—part seven. My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the seventh year we’ve done this. My favorite book of 2013 was probably Where’d You Go Bernadette, by Maria Semple. I’m not sure how much that had to do with the book itself […]

The Books of 2011

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time—part five. This was the year I embraced technology in earnest and had a number of different books going on various devices. I also experimented with going back and forth between reading and audio books, and found I liked it with some books, particularly nonfiction when the author read their […]

The Books of 2008

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time-part two My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the second year we’ve done this. Last year I set a goal to read better books but this year I actually read MORE books that weren’t necessarily of the highest quality. I’m […]

The Books of 2012

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time—part six. My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the sixth year we’ve done this. My favorite book of 2012 was probably The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It will make a gorgeous movie if the right director get ahold of it. […]

The Books of 2009

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time-part three My son started keeping a reading list in third grade, so I did too. This is the third year we’ve done this. For the last two years I’ve set a goal to read better (i.e. more literary or more challenging books) but I keep finding that more and […]

The Books of 2007

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time My son started keeping a reading list and so I decided to try it last year as well. Though I didn’t calculate pages, or get any prizes when I got around “Mrs. Brown’s Brook” every time I read 1,000 pages like he did. When it came time to put […]

The Books of 2010

by lesliedinaberg on January 21, 2014

So many books, so little time—part four. This was the year I started keeping my list in Excel format. I think I also got an iphone and was able to read digitally in those car pool lane, doctor’s office waiting room, etc. moments that moms seem to have so many of. My favorite books included That […]
