Best Books of 2009

The list of 100 Notable Books of 2009 has arrived at the New York Times website.. As usual, you’ll find very little genre fiction and the nonfiction is mostly confined to biography, history, and political works, but if you accept those limitations, it’s always an interesting list. The annual “best of” lists are a goldmine for book groups, as these titles will gradually arrive in less expensive softcover editions in the coming year and begin to become more widely available at local libraries.  Additional "Best of 2009" book lists can be found at:

NPR, Library Journal, Good Reads, Christian Science Monitor, Economist
