Favorite Books Read During 2006

Frank Wilson's asked what are your favorite books you've read in the past year.

Here are mine (I've added the poetry category to his list):

Fiction: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

Nonfiction: Objects on a Table: Harmonious Disarray in Art and Literature by Guy Davenport

Poetry: Beyond Remembering: The Collected Poems of Al Purdy

(None of these were originally published in 2006; that's just when I got around to reading them.)
