Year-end "best books of 2013" lists are trickling in, and I have started aggregating them into one master list like I do every year.
My own lists are put together in December, when I have started almost exclusively reading 2014 titles, but I can safely predict that three books will be among my 2013 favorites: Susan Steinberg's short story collection Spectacle, J.M. Ledgard's novel Submergence, and Jesmyn Ward's memoir Men We Reaped.
For a chance at winning these books, leave a comment with the name of the best book you read so far this year (it doesn't have to have been published in 2013).
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (November 15th).
