It's December, which is the unofficial "taking stock" month of the Internet. And one of the Internet's favorite year-end topics focuses on the best book of 2012.
There are plenty of takes to choose from, like the newsy list, the most-purchased list, the best-as-voted-by-social-media-users list, the traditional list, the contrarian publication's list. We could go on.
But now it's time to hear from you. What was the best book you read in 2012? And "best," of course, is subjective.
It can mean your favorite, the one you thought was crafted best, the one you thought was most thought-provoking — or the one that you just had to renew from Marian J. Mohr Library more than once. It's up to you.
