For Bibliophiles

This week's New York Times has two end-of-year book lists, 100 Notable Books of 2008 and Janet Maslin's and Michiko Kakutani's personal top ten lists. And here is the Times Literary Supplement's "Books of the Year" feature as chosen by a number of prominent literary figures. And since you'll be buying all of these books, including, of course, this one once it comes out in the next few weeks, you'll need to think about shelving space. Laura Miller is here to help, though I, for one, am not very good at discarding books.

What a wonderful list. I'm looking forward to reading, "A Mercy" by T. Morrison. If only time would not move so that I could read! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving

Tramaine --
Make the time over Christmas Break to read at least something that you want to outside of your work. And Toni Morrison can even be justified given the material you teach.
Our Thanksgiving was wonderful, thanks. I hope yours was as well.
