The Best of 2011
If you see this limited edition rickshaw around town, it is likely some fabulous person checked it off on my list, Ho! Ho! Ho! (Those who know me would get a big kick out of this).
I particularly rely on the The New York Times 100 Notable Books of the year for the bookish ones on my list.
For the visual readers young and old, you cannot go wrong with any of the Best Illustrated Books. Or perhaps one of the 65 Best Books of 2011, chosen by School Library Journal from the more than 6000 books reviewed this year might bring a smile and a big hug?
Impeccable in their selections, the editors of the Library Journal have a few suggestions to share as well, especially for the nonfiction readers on your list. Don't miss the Librarian's Best, and the Best Genre Fiction of the year.
