York County bookstore owners, readers pick favorite reads from 2012

"Gone Girl" by Gillian FlynnAs I tried to remember the books I’d read in 2012, I had far too many “favorites” to choose just one.

I was drawn to the unique narrative styles of Chris Cleave’s “Incendiary” and Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.” I enjoyed the easygoing tone of half-memoir, half-cookbook “Everlasting Meal” by Tamar Adler. And how do I not mention Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” or Cheryl Strayed’s “Wild”?

And then, of course, there are the local authors I’ve discovered (and covered) in the past year. These are serious problems for a bibliophile — they’re all my favorites. So I asked a few York County bookstore owners and Daily Record co-workers to share their nominations for the best book they read in 2012.

If you’re looking for a new read in 2013, it’s a great list to check out. Read the full post at Book Buzz.
