A glance at the books of 2011 isn’t as easy it seems because while there have been some amazing, in fact, thousands of amazing, books out this year; I’ve been busy and have really only been able to read on the Kindle and ebook reader apps on my phone.
Despite this I have picked my top five books for 2011.
The rest of the book choices have come from unread books and from lists around the world.
