Here is Christina's list of her favorite reads in 2009. I agree about The Book Thief. It's extremely beautiful.
If you want to get a head start on your charitable activities, get some ideas from this book that Angelina Jolie is reading. It's Greg Mortenson's Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Here is a great weekend read suggestion from College Candy: I Am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak. He wrote The Book Thief, too.
How? Start by reading The Happiness Project of Gretchen Ruben. Recommended by Oprah!
I've read Ceremony (one of my all-time faves) and Wicked (brilliant). I will check the other books suggested. You should, too!
