15/365 – Sunday Salon

I thought I would change the format for Sunday…and instead of yapping on, I’d give you the opportunity to talk about the books. So, on Sunday I’ll ask a question and invite you to answer.

Before 2011 slips from our memory…tell me about the best book you read in 2011. Is it something I’ve read? (If so, great, we can share our thoughts). Is it something on my tbr list? (Great, maybe I should move it to the top of the pile.) Is it something that’s not even on my radar? (Great, maybe I should check it out!)

In case you missed it, my top ten list for 2011 is here

Now it’s your turn.

The best book I read in 2011 was….

    The best book I read in 2011 is Little Princes by Conner Grennan. It’s a true story about a guy who decides to volunteer at an orphanage in Nepal, basically so he can tell girls that he volunteered at an orphanage in Nepal. Needless to say he falls in love with the kids, who it turns out are not all orphaned. A man would go into the tiny remote villages and tell parents that he would take the kids somewhere safe if they gave him a huge amount of money. He would take the kids just far enough away so they couldn’t get back and abandon them. When Connor realizes this he begins an organization to help bring the kids and their parents back together.
    As much as the story is about the kids it is also about Connor’s personal growth. It is a funny heartfelt story that is never preachy and really makes you think. If you can’t tell I am passionate about this book and I think everyone should read it 🙂

      This sounds like an excellent book. I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I’ve added this to my tbr list. Thanks for ‘selling’ it so passionately!
