I am too exhausted from the committee work and the travel home to post rationally about this tonight. However, I do want to make a plea that we stop posting about books we hate. Is this really how we want to be seen by someone visiting the list (say a reporter)? Let's change the time and talk about titles we love, perhaps some that are under the radar of folks. Or talk about oldies but goodies that deserve to find a new audience.
I promise I will write more about this as I recuperate from meetings and travel. For now, I just want to thank all committee members who spent more hours than you can imagine reading and re-reading and re-reading books. I am combing my shelves and pulling those titles I have not read yet. Soon, the 2013 books will arrive for my next committee assignment. First, though, I want to see what I missed this year.
