Everyone knows about GOODREADS. Just to refresh some memories, it's the largest network of readers and book recommendations online...or anywhere!

This year the best book in fiction selected by Goodreads readers is Landline by Rainbow Rowell. The novel follows a TV writer in a crumbling marriage who discovers a way to talk to her husband in the past...on a phone.
I am reading Landline and all I can say is...Were the Goodreads voters all drunk??? With all the wonderful fiction out this year...this is what they picked?!!? I'm so disillusioned, disappointed and disgruntled! I hope you read it so we can all suffer together...

LANDLINE by RAINBOW ROWELL (Goodreads Author)
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble
for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her,
But that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for
Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go.....
and it all goes downhill....
I'm probably in the minority..Obviously many liked this book...but it's
my not so humble opinion and I'm standing by it!
