Question of the Day


Earlier this week, Sean Lovelace at HTMLGIANT asked about the last time you read a book you didn’t really want to read, and while I was coming up with my answer, it occurred to me that I haven’t finished anything I didn’t enjoy since I was in grad school. Since then, I’ve had a lot more time to discover books on my own.

So my question to you is: what’s the last book that you found on your own, without any prodding from a friend or book review or anything along those lines, that you loved? Leave your answers in the comments.
