My Favorite Books Read in 2013

This list is a little off topic, but here is my list of best books that I actually read this past year.  Many -- in fact all but one -- were published in earlier years.  One, Mickey Spillane's My Gun Is Quick, was first published over 60 years ago. But as someone once told me, every book is a new book until you read it.

My best books read in 2013

1.     Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn
2.     Life Itself, Roger Ebert
3.     The Help, Kathryn Stockett
4.     Sycamore Row, John Grisham
5.     The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lax, Rebecca Skloot
6.     The Innocent Man (non-fiction), John Grisham
7.     The Kennedy Detail, Gerald Blaine
8.     Dark Voyage, Alan Furst
9.     Reclaiming History, Vincent Bugliosi
10. Thomas Jefferson, the Art of Power, John Meacham
11. My Gun Is Quick, Mickey Spillane
12. Dark Places, Gillian Flynn
