2008 Employee Favorites: Suzanne

1. The Good Prince: Fables #10 by Bill Willingham
Fairy tales are adult again — noirish, literary, ironic, and in graphic-novel form. When a new Fables collection comes out, I rush home, set it facedown on the coffee table, and reread the back cover blurb. Then I plan for time — I schedule enough time to read it through uninterrupted, though I'm just as likely to suddenly set it down to save for later, or flip back to the beginning to start afresh. I'm easily entertained and perpetually overexcited, it's true, but these are drastic measures even for me.

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

3. Shakespeare's Wife by Germaine Greer

4. Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior by Ori Brafman and Rom Brafman

5. Devil's Brood by Sharon Kay Penman

Suzanne saves time by reading at stoplights and while walking. She is currently doing private research to determine the absolute best recipe for gooey chocolate chip cookies.
