Top reads of 2005

This year, like every year, we’ve read many books. Now, contrary to others who will lie and make up politically correct lines like: “It’s been so difficult to choose favorites out of so many wonderful pieces of literature, but we really had to try,” or, “It’s taken us the better part of a month and many a sleepless night to pick our top reads, yada yada yada...” we’ll tell you the truth.

Most books we read this year were so FREAKING BAD, there were times when jumping out the window—from a tenth floor—into a bed of thorns!—was a better option than continuing to read such garbage. Anyway these are our favorites*:
