For the second year in a row, we're asking book bloggers to help put together a top 10 list of books published in 2009.
You'll have two weeks to come up with your list before I begin compiling the voting booths. Then we'll put it to a vote. Last year, we ended up with over 1300 individual voters and I know we can make it just as big this year.
So what are your top 10 books of 2009?
I'm addicted to creating lists, that and I cannot pass up an opportunity to introduce readers to writers who don't get enough promotion (in my opinion). Here's my top ten. To the writers, thank you for an incredible year.
