The Best Books of 2011: Reader’s Choices

Source: National Post, 12-29-11

In early December, we asked readers to tell us their favourite books of the year. In the end, nearly 500 people cast votes for over 1000 different titles. To be eligible, a book must have been published in 2011 – that eliminated popular picks like The Help, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Water for Elephants, Room, and many others. After tallying up the votes, Walter Isaacson’s critically acclaimed biography of Steve Jobs emerged as the clear winner. Here are the top 30 books of 2011, as chosen by you, our readers.
