I'm always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven't covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.
I am picking up a lot of lists from Largehearted Boy.
(Oh dear god, I think this is it. The last list. I think. I hope. Anyways, I'm working on the 2010 summary post that'll tally and rank all the books from the lists I've posted. I'll hopefully get that up next week.)
