Oh boy, this is kind of sad. After reviewing both the 2007 PW Best Books and the 2007 NYT Notables, I have only read two books from these lists:
The Archivist's Story by Travis Holland (review)
On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan (review)
However, I am slightly consoled to know that three NYT Notables are sitting on my bookshelf, just waiting to be read:
The Abstinence Teacher by Tom Perrotta
Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo
The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon
I am mulling over how many books I want to read from these notable lists in 2008 - I will be back to post my choices soon!
