Yesterday's New York Times featured this story about Nina Sankovitch who is about to wrap up her own "year of books" quest of reading one book a day for a year. She began on her last birthday, October 28. She blogs at http://www.readallday.org/home.html. Looking over her list I found five books that I have read.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz - This was listed as one of her favorites. Junot Diaz spoke here at Bridgewater State College last October.
A Hope in the Unseen by Ron Suskind - Also one of her favorites
Scat by Carl Hiaasen
Twilight by Stephanie Meyers - She has not read the others in this series because of her one-book-per-author rule.
When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris - She had a very different opinion of his book than I did. My review for the Internet Review of Books can be found here.
It does not appear that she has read any "year of" books, so none of her books overlap with anything on this blog.
