An ideal book to me is one who can't wait to read. In a fiction book it is definitely the plot while in a nonfiction it is the genre. Some of the interesting books I read last year include Jesus Land by Scheers. It was a memoir about racism and religion. I personally liked it because it showed how evil religion can be. I enjoyed Infidel, another book documenting the evils of religion. I enjoy anything by Demille, he always keeps me on the edge of my seat. Piccoult is another excellent writer. Other books I've enjoyed are the Memory Keeper's Daughter and The Lovely Bones. Both books were page turners. The Kite Runner was an excellent book. I enjoyed Water for Elephants. Some of the books we have read that I really liked were: Molokai & Blink.
