Mid-Day Open Thread--Best Books Of 2007

Without question, the book that stands out for me this year was The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein. But I also read some other fantastic books as well: Framing the Debate by Jeffrey Feldman, The Assault on Reason by Al Gore and Conservatives Without Conscience by John Dean. For non-political works, I really enjoyed NonnyMouse's Redemption and Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

So I'm curious, and it's an extension of last night's open thread, but what were the BEST books of 2007 for you? The NY Times gives their list here.
