The Gift of Words : Season’s Readings

As promised, here are some year-end lists of best books. Peruse these lists to see what you might want to read once all those papers are finished, what you might buy for your Mom or brother, what your roommate or best friend might like for Christmas or Channukah or whatever end-of-the-year festival you celebrate. Festivus anyone?

The New York Times Top 10 came out this morning. This follows last week's 100 Notable Books of 2009.

NPR's Top Picks from Indie Booksellers.

Publishers Weekly Best Books 2009

Times Literary Supplement (London) Books of the Year 2009

And don't forget old books as well (the best kind IMHO). The super-site ABEBooks has all kinds. (Just between you and me, I'm wishing for something from the 19th century, maybe in French? Santa, are you listening?)

Tell us your picks for Book of the Year.
