As a fun filled dinner with Vanderbilt friends wound down in Memphis, TN last weekend, the table conversation spiraled into the classic reflection that often accompanies wine and dessert (a la the “who gets the last brownie” scene in Notting Hill). The question de jour was “What has been your favorite book you’ve read the past year?” Ours was a toss up between One Day (type of engrossment in which you put the book down and wonder what Emma is doing today and what they are serving at Dex’s cafe) and Orange is the New Black (really thoughtful entre into the subculture of a woman’s prison. Not something we’d thought about much). So, we pose the question for you as we tune up our post summer reading list. What’s the best book you’ve read in the past year?
