30 Day Book Challenge - the challenge

Being the incredible lover of books that I am, I knew I had to do this one when I saw it on a blog I recently started reading.  It's a 30 day book challenge, so expect to see a lot of good books here.  I don't know if I'll manage to get them all done within 30 days, but I will post them as I can get to them (including links).

Day 01 – The best book you read this year: 

 I'm a huge fan of Neil Gaiman.  I think he's one of the most interesting, fascinating and talented writers of our time.  And I read anything that I can get my hands on.  Instructions is a children's book, but it doesn't matter.  It tells us what lessons we should learn from the fairy tales, all the little ways that the heroes and heroines messed up in the stories.  It's also beautifully illustrated by Charles Vess.  It's just a wonderful little book.  It's one of my favorite books of all time.

Watch this week for these answers.
