Top Ten Favorite Books in 2011

A new year is coming to town. Let's tidy up all the scattering books. Choose which books go to the bookshelf and which one goes for sale. It's also the time to list down all books read in 2011. This year I read 60 books. I have never made any target for the number of books to be read each year. I thought that if I do so I will focus more on reaching the target instead of enjoying the book itself. Therefore I just let it flow. No target. Just grab the book I like and read it.

After comparing from year to year, it seems that I always read 50-60 books a year. Well...let's consider that within 52 weeks in a year I can finish one book per week. Not bad at all:)

Here is the list:
1. Angel's Cake by Gaile Parkin
2. In A Strange Room by Damon Galgut
3. Water for Elephant by Sara Gruen
4. of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan
5. Garis Batas & Selimut Debu by Agustinus Wibowo
6. Wuthering Height by Emily Bronte
7. Gadis Jeruk by Jostein Gaarder
8. When God was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman
9. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
10. Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay

This year I will try my best to buy less books and finish ton of books that have been put peacefully in the bookshelf for about... a decade? *same old boring new year wish* :D
