Top 20 Books of 2011

Books!!! Who reads books? Books are for nerds!!!

Top 20 books? more like top ZERO books!

Alright, if I must...

These are all books that I read for the first time this year. I'm not very current, but there are a lot of books and it takes a while to read them. I don't think I'll ever catch up on all the books I want to read.

Top Ten Fiction

10."This Side of Paradise" - F.Scott Fitzgerald

9. "Huckleberry Finn" - Mark Twain

8. "A Princess of Mars" - Edgar Rice Burroughs

7. "Batman : Dark Victory" - Jeph Leob/Tim Sale

6. "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" - Michael Chabon

5. "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" - Susanna Clarke

4. "The Crossing" - Cormac McCarthy

3. "The Iron Heel" - Jack London

2. "Brights Passage" - Josh Ritter

1. "Down and Out in Paris and London" -George Orwell

Batman aside, none of these take place later than 1949, I like stories set in the olden days of olden times, ah but sure we were happy etc.

10."An Idiot Abroad" - Karl Pilkington

9. "Out of the Ordinary" - Jon Ronson
