The web and print media are rife with “best book of 2012” lists right now. I’m curious about what our local Marin County “Best Reads of 2012” list would look like.
Whether you went along for the ride in the thriller Gone Girl or hiked along with Cheryl Strayed in Wild, enjoyed the glories of the Italian coast spiked with the lure of Hollywood in Beautiful Ruins, or reveled in the politics of Tudor history in Bring up the Bodies, let us know what your favorite books from 2012 were. Share your gems-- not necessarily from the bestseller lists, just what you enjoyed reading the most in 2012, and we’ll compile a list to post on our website.
I’ll start things off: one of my favorites from the past year was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline-- a bit of 80’s nostalgia cyberquest set in a not-too distant future.
See you in the stacks!
