Ten Most Memorable Books - What Do Writers Read?
Several of my favorites are on the list: A Fine Balance, The Alexandria Quartet and House of the Spirits among them. There are a number of short story collections listed and two writers I know through The Writer’s Studio. Shaena Lambert’s Oh, My Darling and Ayelet Tsabari’s The Best Place on Earth are both wonderful.
My CTRL C impulse kicked in, the weather changed to autumn and blog #5 was born. Why should I keep this list to myself? Wouldn’t others benefit from this spontaneous outpouring of lit love? While those in Vancouver (where I live) may complain when winter arrives, I think there are many who walk past their stack of carefully selected cold-weather reads, just waiting for long evenings and quiet weekends.

I’m not sure who started the challenge but perhaps it will come back around at some point. If it does, will someone please add Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things?
