I helped proctor an exam today at work. I actually read the entire Paul Auster novel, Oracle Night. Not my favorite of his books, but not my least favorite either. Like many of my favorite authors he was introduced to me by Signe in Norway.
Last time I proctored I read, Eat Pray Love, probably my favorite book I read in 2007.
My goal for next year is to read more fiction. My reading in the last years has been heavy on the politics and light on the novels. What was the best thing you read in 2007?
UPDATE: Proving my point about Signe, Maite in the comments suggests the book Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz-Zafon. Signe actually sent me that book last year for Christmas! It really is an amazing book.
