Best Books of the Decade--2000-2009

I have no qualifications (as mentioned many times before, I think).  So, in no particular order, here is a list of the books I thought were the best from 2000-2009:

(1) The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

(2) Middlesex

(3) The Time Traveler's Wife

(4) Everything Is Illuminated

(5) Bel Canto

(6) Atonement

(7) The Road

(8) The Namesake

(9) The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

(10) The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

(11) Case Histories, One Good Turn, When Will There Be Good News

(12) Harry Potter--The Deathly Hallows

(13) Paradise Park

(14) Water for Elephants

(15) The Plot Against America

(16) The World To Come

(17) The Life of Pi

(18) Anil's Ghost

(19) The Liberated Bride (even though A.B. Yehoshua bothered me by his sexism when I heard him speak in person)

And, that leaves room for books I might read in the next few weeks.  I may add to this list or take away from this list.

I think you might be interested in what A.B. Yehoshua has to say about Americans for Peace Now...a pro-Israel pro-Peace organization.
