1. "S." by JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst
    Impossible to explain. Simply the coolest book concept I've ever seen
  2. "One More Thing" by @bjnovak
    My favorite collection of short stories. Funnily poignant, poignantly funny
  3. "The Yiddish Policemen's Union" by Michael Chabon
    Much-heralded, and rightly so. Plot is outdone by wordplay, but the plot is strong as well
  4. "This is a Book" by Demetri Martin
    The essence of Martin's humor, in book form. Really, in short-story/poem/sketch form
  5. "Born Standing Up" by Steve Martin
    Fascinating look into a fascinating life. Particularly interesting for fans of comedy as an institution
  6. "Consider the Lobster" by David Foster Wallace
    Never thought I could be thoroughly engaged in a literary critique of a book I've never read. DFW is impossibly good
