My Favorite Book of 2015 and Other Recommendations

My favorite book of 2015:

HforHawk
H is for Hawk by Helen MacDonald

I have written about this book before. Please read the New Yorker essay by Kathryn Schulz on this book.

Have a look at THE JOY OF READING IN THE CITY – a series of photographs in the New York Times this month (Monday, December 18th) capturing people all over the city engrossed in their books. Lovely pictorial.
