Favourite Reads of 2008 - Librarian's Picks Part Two. . .

Off to London, Ontario today with two more quirky lists from librarians with the London Public Library. Cheryl Dinsdale is the fiction selector and David McCord keeps the shelves stocked with non-fiction. Here's what they enjoyed reading this year.

Cheryl Dinsdale's list:

The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson
The Vows of Silence by Susan Hill
What Was Lost by Catherine O’Flynn
