It's the time of year for navel-gazing--looking back over the last twelve months--assessing, choosing, re-living. We survived it all, and then some!
Book lovers await the happy plethora (love that word) of book lists. Best of this, best of that. Here is a compendium of best books of 2009, judged from a number of angles--best of genre, award winners, etc., etc. All in all, enough to make any reader feel that there just aren't enough hours in the day.
Best of luck catching up with them all, and happy reading.
