Every November Nancy Pearl speaks at the Whatcom Literacy Council fundraiser breakfast. She gives her list of favorite books for the year. These are books that she's read in the last year, not necessarily published in 2014. I've included a few that she mentioned in passing, but weren't on the official list. Three titles were not available (as of yet) through the library: Shooting Star by Peter Temple, Diamond Lane by Karen Karbo, and Poets in Their Youth by Eileen Simpson.
