This is that time of the year when we start to see a multitude of "Best of...." lists. One of my favorites is always The New York Times "Notable Books of..." for whatever year we happen to be ending. This year's list isn't officially released until Sunday, December 7, but it's already firmly ensconced in their "most emailed" articles. So, don't be left out! Take a look at the attached link to the NYT's vote for "100 Notable Books of 2008" to see how many of these books you have read! Are there any surprises for you? Any titles that you think should have been included?
The Free Library already owns all but one or two of these titles, and we'll be getting those shortly, so take a moment to peruse this rich and very diverse list and click to our catalog to reserve a copy of one or more of these titles. These lists always make me feel somewhat ill-read, but they are also inspiring. I see more than one or two titles that I'm going to make sure I read in the new year. How about you?
