ALA has released its list of Notable Books for 2005. Some of my favorite books of the year have made the list: Airborn, Star of Kazan, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale, The Cats in Krasinski Square, Walt Whitman: Words for America, and Science Verse.
If you are looking for a list of good books, this is a great place to start.
I have got to get busy. I have many more books to read.
