Our 10 Favorite Books of 2016
In a year full of great reads, ten stayed with us long after we'd turned the last page: novels that made it easy to forgo Netflix, essays that fed our souls, fairy tales with a modern spin. In short, 2016 was one for the books!

Born To Run
Simon & Schuster
Our favorite working-class hero delivers a hot-blooded, introspective
memoir filled with vivid anecdotes of the making of a rock
star—air-guitaring in front of the mirror; borrowing his older cousin's
clothing style; battling acne, insecurity, depression. He's not the
mourning poet of Patti Smith's M Train or the self-styled enigma of Bob Dylan's Chronicles. Instead, he's a troubadour as generous and electric as his every performance.
