Best book I read in 2011: The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga.  The book was insightful, brilliantly irreverent, humorous and a great view into another culture. 

I will read any book by:   Kurt Vonnegut

Best place to curl up with a book on a rainy day:  Since I am dyslexic, my answer might be a little bit different.  It is being in the wood shop, making a piece of furniture and listening to an audio book.  The library to go feature is a favorite of mine for both audio books and ebooks.

Best place to lounge with a book in the sun:  In my spot on the deck at Adams Lake, early morning, cup of coffee and summer novel.

A guilty pleasure favourite: Douglas Adams – Wonderfully quirky and I never know what is going to happen next.  “I love deadlines.  I like the wooshing sound they make as they fly by”.

The book I push on all my friends because it is soooooooo good:  A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry.
