Mary Ann Gwinn, the Seattle Times book editor, has an interesting article with her list of the ten best books for 2005. Here are some of the titles:

The March by E.L. Doctorow (Random House)
Teacher Man by Frank McCourt (Scribner)
1776 by David McCullough (Simon & Schuster)
Shalimar the Clown by Salman Rushdie (Random House)

Two of the books on Gwinn's list are also on James McGowan's list:

The Year of Magical Thinking
by Joan Didion
On Beauty by Zadie Smith

James Mcgowan of the Ottawa Citizen made his recommendations in an article titled, Ten Books That Can't Miss , published December 4,2005. Also on Mc Gowan's list is The Tender Bar by J. R. Moehringer

Hmmm lots of books to read so little time to get to them.
