Best Of for 2010


Once again I’ve been poking around. National Public Radio (NPR) has a webpage devoted to a group of “best of” by their different columnists. I glanced through all the different lists. I haven’t read any of them (although one has been on order and should arrive any day now). Many of them I haven’t heard of. I decided not to poke too much because I just don’t have the time. Check out the list:

Also, the major children and young adult awards for 2011 like the Caldecott and Newberry Awards were announced this past weekend at the ALA midwinter conference. You can fine those here:

    I haven’t even heard of most of these. I rarely agree with “Best of…” or critics in general (books, movies, etc.) so I don’t often bother. These were interesting lists, though.

    Nice to know I’m not the only voracious reader who hasn’t heard of many of these!
