Best Books of 2006

It is always nice to know that those books that we've read were ones that were the editors' pick. Makes me "think" that I am "one of them", that we are in the same wavelength one way or another. :D

Here's the Amazon's Editor's Pick for the Best Books of 2006. Time to dig in our memory for the title of our favorite books last year.

Our choice for the best book of 2006 was actually written over 60 years ago. Irène Némirovsky wrote Suite Française under the worst conditions: as a Jew in France under constant threat from the Nazi-allied Vichy government. She didn't live to finish her planned "suite," but what she did write--which was recently discovered by her daughter and only this year translated into English--stands on its own as a riveting and remarkably clear-eyed story of life under the occupation. Read the rest of our top 50 books of the year below, and see more editors' picks and customers' favorites in our Best of 2006 Store.
