Today @KirkusReviews... honor of this, Thanksgiving week, I wrote about books I'm thankful to have read this year:

This is NOT a best of list—for one thing, I’ve still got an entire month of reading ahead of me, and as a first-round Cybils panelist, that means that in December, I’ll probably read three times more books than usual; for another, not all of the books on the list came out this year—but, as I said, a list of books that I’m feeling especially thankful to have read this year.
