Looking for a book to read over the holidays? Look no further!

Here are 10 books I would strongly recommend, based on what I read over the past 12 months amazon prime filme downloaden auf laptop.

Note: These are the books that were new to me in 2016. Some (actually, most) were released previously herunterladen.

Anyways, enjoy!

Commonwealth, by Ann Patchett: The prose is a joy ccleaner gratis downloaden windows 10 nederlands. The story, about the decades-long fallout from a cuckolding district attorney’s appearance at a christening party, is even better. Everyone should read this book mario bros.

Gunslinger, by Jeff Pearlman: An exceptional look at a fascinating athlete open office excel for free. Pearlman doesn’t try to reconcile Favre’s personal failures (drug use, adultery, alcoholism) with his compelling personality (Favre teaches a youngster to give his elders the finger in one paragraph, in the next he’s visiting a dying boy at his home); instead, he embraces the contradiction download naruto for free. Worth a read even if you’re not into football or the Packers.

The Only Rule Is It Has To Work, by Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller: Two statheads put their theories to the test with a bottom-of-the-ladder baseball team no one has ever heard of ready powerpoint presentations download for free. The motif is baseball, but this is really required reading for any smart person who has ever encountered the sandpaper resistance of attempting to implement a good idea 4k filme herunterladen.

The Girls, by Emma Cline: This was the “it” book of summer 2016, and for mostly good reason aol desktop gold. Cline’s prose is enough to carry a fairly generic take on your standard cult story.

Robert Kennedy: His Life, by Evan Thomas: RFK is in many ways the most fascinating Kennedy mozilla kostenlos downloaden. Or Thomas at least makes it seem that way.

Brooklyn, by Colm Tóibín: Nick Hornby’s treatment in the movie version is actually better. Still it’s such a great story that those who (like me) loved the movie so much will enjoy the book too.

The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames, by Kai Bird: The tale of a CIA agent’s back channel connection with Hezbollah also serves as a fascinating portrait of one of the world’s most volatile regions.

Purity, by Jonathan Franzen: I still can’t decide if this is a legitimately good book or if all my positive feelings are just leftover from Franzen’s Freedom (one of my favourites).

Here I Am, by Jonathan Safran Foer: “A plague of literary Jonathans”.

Homegoing, by Yaa Gyasi: Follows a family with roots in Africa as it soldiers across generations and continents.
