best, best, best

November 10, 2010

and so it begins.  the best of lists are rolling out with Amazon, LJ (Top 10 with full list forthcoming November 18), and PW publicizing their favorites of the year.

as always, EarlyWord provides great online coverage and analysis of the lists.  also found (via GalleyCat) is largehearted boy’s Best of 2010” list o’ links that is extensive.

of the above top 10 lists, only 3 titles overlap:  “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot (of which we own 5! different editions), “The Warmth of Other Suns:  The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration” by Isabel Wilkerson, and “Freedom” by Jonathan Franzen.

pulling the 2010 titles for display is next to impossible, but what about previous lists?  EarlyWord provides a list of links to the 2009 winners plus a spreadsheet of winners listed on the right-hand side of the blog about 1/2 down the page under a blue column heading titled “Best Books ’09.”  this is a great way to display multiple copies and audiobooks.
