Best of 2005

Amazon has released their list of Best Books of 2005. There are two categories, Editor's Pick and the customers' favorites. A quick look at these lists and I realized that this year we had some really great books. J. K. Rowling's Little Wizard still making people go crazy. And then we had 'YOU: The owner's Manual', 'The World is Flat: A Brief history of Twenty-first Century',
'Freakonomics'
and 'The Blink'.

We had some great Memoirs, such as A Million Little Pieces and The Year of Magical Thinking. We had Nicole Krauss' debut novel 'The history of love' and her husband Jonathan Safran Foer's 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'.

Remaindered link: Thomas Hayden talks about 'The man who knew too much' and 'The Discoveries'; two books giving new insights into great scientific discoveries and the minds that made them.
