This post was a bit hard for me. I read so much that I nearly forgot about the one book that’s taken me the entire year to read. Definitely the best book I’ve read this year has been The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It’s taken me so long to get through it, but it was so worth it. I first heard about this novel through my friend Melina, but I really decided to read it when my high school counselor told me about a scholarship given to students who write an essay about the novel. I love the way Rand expresses herself through objectivism. Since I enjoyed this book so much, I’ve read a few of her essays and I bought her novel Atlas Shrugged (although I have yet to start it). I definitely recommend that you all check out some of Ayn Rand’s stuff.
