NY Times: 10 Best Books of 2009


The New York Times released their list of the Top 10 books of 2009. I am working on my own list, which I will try and post on December 20th (for all you people who want to put some books on your wish lists!)

Take a look at the NY Times list.

Which have you read?
Are there any books you wish were on this list?
Are there any you don't think should be on this list?

Talk to me!

It's kind of funny that neither the Pulitzer winner (Olive Kitteridge) nor the NBA winner (Let The Great World Spin) made the NY Times list!

I'm embarrassed to admit that I actually haven't read a single book on the list, but I'm going to order A Gate At The Stairs, stat!
