'Jammy Dodger', 'The New Kings of Non-Fiction'

What was your Book of 2012? Fill in our survey here - we'll be blogging responses leading up to Christmas.

@Elaine_Dobbyn went for Ira Glass's collection The New Kings of Non-Fiction:  
A brilliant collection of fascinating non-fiction articles.

Rachel Jones chose Jammy Dodger by Kevin Smith:
By a mile the best book I read this year, a hilariously funny satire about two guys trying to run a poetry magazine in Belfast. Lots of wisecracks about poetry but also about life in general, with some fabulous descriptive passages and a very convincing love story thrown in. This was recommended to me by a friend and to be honest I didn't like the sound of it but once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Comic fiction that will really cheer you up.
