This would be particularly hard for me to pick as while I didn't read hardly any novels this year, I read a lot of information type books from US history, British history, photography and bios. So it would be hard for me to pick one favorite in any genre, but what about you? What was your favorite read for 2007?

couple favorites...

"In a Sunburned Country" by Bill Bryson and "In Search of the Craic" by Colin Irwin.

Bill Bryson's book is a romping drive through Australia and the quest to drive around it's perimeter. Great descriptions of some little known places. A great easy read.

Colin Irwin's book is a drunken ride around Ireland looking for a "authentic craic" and not one of the tourist shows. Few interviews with some of the greats of Irish music...including a chat with Liam Clancy.
You must read this one!

serena you might enjoy Bill Bryson's "A walk in the woods" if you havent already read it...

also there is a great book out called "round ireland with a fridge" by Tony Hawks (not the skateboarder, the british comedian)...

Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows. A fitting end to the HP series.

You know? I read a novel that I really loved a lot. It was titled, "After Dark, My Sweet" by Jim Thompson. A movie was made from the book in the early 90s. I have seen the film and read the book. I think that has to be my favorite novel this year.

Ian Patterson's Guernica and Total War. It's about far more than the aerial bombing of Guernica -- it touches on many aspects of the flawed justification of dragging civilians into the war casualty list with ultra-destructive "shock and awe" tactics, and the futility of this for what it is meant to accomplish -- surrender and cooperation of the subjugated. A must-read for people following current war policy debates.
