My Favorite Books
I read/listened to 71 books this year. Here are my top ten:

Novels:
THE GOOD HOUSE by Ann Leary. Character-driven novel with great humor and heart.
THE HUSBAND’S SECRET by Liane Moriarty. Fast-paced novel with three wonderful protagonists.
ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes. Romance, sadness, depth.
LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER by Jojo Moyes. Once I started this book, I resented everything in my life that got in the way of finishing it.
INFINITE JEST by David Foster Wallace. Incredibly long, with little plot and no real ending. Also hilarious, brilliant, and unique.

Nonfiction:
WHY WE GET FAT by Gary Taubes. New York Times science reporter explains why carbs and sugar are so unhealthy. The book changed the way I eat and helped me lose a little weight.
LEAN IN: WOMEN, WORK, AND THE WILL TO LEAD by Sheryl Sandberg. A modern feminist manifesto. Loved it despite the guilt it induced about spending only nine years as a lawyer.
I FEEL BAD ABOUT MY NECK by Nora Ephron. Funny, warm, intelligent essay collection.  Why, oh, why did she have to die?
GOING CLEAR: SCIENTOLOGY, HOLLYWOOD, AND THE PRISON OF BELIEF by Lawrence Wright. Mesmerizing and terrifying. Reading about the evils of Scientology gave me nightmares.
EVERY GHOST STORY IS A LOVE STORY: A LIFE OF DAVID FOSTER WALLACE by D.T. Max. Well-written biography of a fascinating, brilliant, flawed, mentally ill writer.

My Favorite Books
I read or listened to 78 books this year. After listing my favorites, I realized all my fiction faves were written by women and all my nonfiction faves by men. Weird, huh? Here they are:

Noah's Compass by Anne Tyler. I've read all her books except her new one and love them all. She writes such deep characters. The ending is especially terrific. 

I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella. Another author I adore. Great pacing, plotting, characters, and humor. The scene in the jewelry store is one of the funniest things I've ever read.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. So quirky and clever.

The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan. An overflowing lifeboat stuck at sea. Who will survive? Chilling.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Another chilling book. There's good reason it's so popular.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. So I'm a little behind the curve. Exceeded my high expectations.

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. Not exactly the nicest guy in the world, but fascinating.

Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer. The history and techniques of memorization. Sounds like a bore, but totally compelling as told by Foer.

J.D. Salinger: A Life by Kenneth Slawenski. Incredibly well researched bio of my favorite writer.

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Who knew statistical analysis could be so much fun?

Argo by Antonio Mendez and Matt Baglio. Really cool CIA stuff. Even better than the movie.

My New Toy!
I&quot;ve been using my new toy-- a treadmill desk-- every day since I got it a few weeks ago. I love it! I go only 1-1.5 miles an hour on it, but at that speed I barely know I&quot;m exercising (well, I barely am exercising) and can surf the Net almost guilt-free. I was inspired by author Art Slade, who made his own treadmill desk a few years ago, and a study that sitting all day is really bad for your health. The best thing about the treadmill desk is that I can fit a large pizza on it. Kidding.

I love my new toy! I've been on it every day since I got it a few weeks ago. I walk one to three miles a day on it, at a super slow rate of one to one and a half miles per hour. That rate allows me to play around on the Net and talk on the phone easily and nearly guilt-free. And I don't even break a sweat (yuck). I haven't tried actually writing novels while on it, but I will soon. My treadmill desk takes up about the same amount of space as a small couch. I was inspired by author Arthur Slade, who made his own treadmill desk a few years ago and does write novels on it. I was also inpired by studies showing that sitting on your tush all day, even if you exercise an hour of that day, is really bad for the ole health. The best thing about my treadmill desk: It easily holds an extra-large pepperoni pizza. Kidding. It can't fit more than a large size.

Friday Five
1. My ZEKE MEEKS series got its first official review, from Kirkus Reviews. I hear it's a good one, calling Zeke Meeks an "easier-to-read option to the Wimpy Kid series." Yay! Phew! I've never read the Wimpy Kid books, but my sixth-grader and his friends are big fans. And I believe they sell pretty decently too. :-) The first four Zeke Meeks books and the Kirkus review come out in January.

2. Three movies I'm dying to see: The Descendants, and not just because of George Clooney; Young Adult, about a young adult author; and We Need to Talk About Kevin, based on one of the most memorable and creepiest novels I've ever read.

3. To whoever stole my daughter's wallet: Thanks at least for returning her driver's license and student ID card yesterday.

4. I'm still not over the tragic travesty of Cochran getting voted out of Survivor.

5. This huge fan of Sophie Kinsella found an author just as good: Jill Mansell. And I found an author like the wonderful Nick Hornby: David Nicholls.
