What Was the Best Book You Read This Year?

It's that time of year: The internet is littered with best books lists for 2012. But why let critics and publishers get the last word? What was your favorite book this year?

It's December, which is the unofficial "taking stock" month of the Internet. And one of the Internet's favorite year-end topics focuses on the best book of 2012.

There are plenty of takes to choose from, like the newsy list, the most-purchased list, the best-as-voted-by-social-media-users list, the traditional list, the contrarian publication's list. We could go on.

But now it's time to hear from you. What was the best book you read in 2012? And best, of course, is subjective. It can mean your favorite, the one you thought was crafted best, the one you thought was most thought-provoking. Or fun. Or important. It's up to you.

Best book I've read this year was a small gem called The News from Spain by Cambridge author Joan Wickersham. I just loved it!

"The Politician" by Robert Welch (a reread) an account of a part of American history most folks are unaware of. Both eye-opening and terrifying.
