This time of year there are “Best Books of 2009” lists everywhere you turn – most authoritatively of all, BookPage’s.
But since we can only highlight a handful of the great titles out there, we wanted to let you weigh in. At the end of our most recent edition of BookPageXTRA, we asked our readers to tell us their favorite book of 2009. Many of the results confirmed our own opinions. Others surprised us. Others just cracked us up. (Staff favorite response: “Only one??? – You MUST be kidding!!!! Which genre???” We understand that reader’s frustration.)
After reviewing the 2,000+ responses in our reader poll, I’ve made some unscientific conclusions:
If you’re not already a BookPageXTRA subscriber and you’d like to enter our reader poll, click the “CLICK HERE TO ENTER” ad at the top of this e-newsletter. (And you can also subscribe to BookPageXTRA.) If you do receive XTRA and you haven’t entered, look for the e-mail in your inbox titled “BookPageXTRA: Celebrate the New Year with free books.” (It’s probably buried under the 84,000 other e-newsletters you’re getting this time of year.)
And please enter before Dec. 22. We’re ready to tally our book winner and award a lucky reader a box of free books!
