Every year some of the Berkeleyside team, aided by ardent readers in the community, select their favorite books of the year. This year we asked the new head of the Berkeley Public Library, the new publisher of Heyday Books, a Berkeley novelist, a former financial wizard deeply involved in Jewish communal life, our regular book reviewer, and three Berkeleysiders to tell us about the books they most enjoyed reading.
