    What a year!  Favorite books?  I'm thinking my favorite book this year was "Complications" by Atul Gawande, and his book, "The Checklist Manifesto" also really great.

    "The Da Vinci Code" By Dan Brown. Late I know, but I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie.

      I've also recently read Dan Brown but "Angels and Demons" - I also made sure I read it before the movie, the movie however didn't do it justice.
