Book Spot "Best of 2011" Awards are here!

Recently we were sitting around the Book Spot talking about all of the great books that we have read this year. We have read some really good books this year and we have been really impressed. We thought we ought to write this down and so the idea of the Book Spot Best of List began. As it just so happened, we had written down 15 books, which broke up very easily into 3 categories: Hard Back, Paper Back and Young Adult. We have 5 books in each category. These are mostly books that were released this year, but some are books that we just finally got around to reading. As we were thinking about it, we wanted to add in a Kid's Book List as well, so we added a 4th group for Kid's Books.

A Stolen Life - Jaycee Dugard
Explosive Eighteen - Janet Evanovich
10th Anniversary - James Paterson
