Booking Through Thursday

1. What fiction book (or books) would you nominate to be the best new book published in 2007?
(Older books that you read for the first time in 2007 don’t count.)

So far I’d have to say Matthew Cook’s Blood Magic.

2. What non-fiction book (or books) would you nominate to be the best new book published in 2007?
(Older books that you read for the first time in 2007 don’t count.)

I didn’t read any published this year so none.

3. And, do “best of” lists influence your reading?

Yes, of course. Even if I don’t take an immediate notice of them, I can’t help but to notice if some books are mentioned again and again. Also, if I know that someone’s taste in books are completely different from mine, I’ll take a note to stay away from the books they recommend.
