My favorite "great escape" for 2007 was The Time Traveler's Wife. I loved that book. The book that most expanded my view of the world was Three Cups of Tea. Author Greg Mortensen is coming to Rochester on February 11 in honor of the annual Rochester Reads program. I am excited to meet him. The biggest "wow" ending happened in The Last Time They Met. You have to read it yourself! The book that left me feeling sad was The Glass Castle but I'm so glad I read it so I can understand humanity better. The book I loved but didn't think I would was Water for Elephants. Thanks to my parents and teachers for helping me love reading, and thanks to my book club for choosing such outstanding selections (and for serving such yummy drinks, delicious food, and fantastic girl talk!).
