Top of the List!
Posted by: Keir Graff

In case you missed it, the 2008 Editors’ Choice and Top of the List lists have been posted on Booklist Online. And, this afternoon, the 21st edition of REaD ALERT will hit your in-box. (Haven’t signed up yet? Go for it! Then sign up for Booklist Online Exclusives, which makes its debut next week.)

Have I mentioned how pleased I am that Richard Price’s Lush Life is the Top of the List pick for adult fiction? No? I find that surprising. Here’s the full list:

Lush Life, by Richard Price (Farrar)

    Wow! How great to read the Editor’s Choice before the print Booklist has made it to my mailbox. So many great books, videos, and audiobooks – Edgar Sawtell is next on my list!
