Sunday Lists: End of Year (it begins) and Famous Authors

It is time for the Sunday lists. I’ve got two for your listing pleasure this week.

A. The Kirkus Reviews Best Fiction of 2011 list — it is that time of year when all and sundry publish lists of the Year’s Best Books. Since this is a blog about back list books, these are mostly my future reading. I have read one book from the Kirkus Reviews 2011 list — Reamde by Neal Stephenson. I got on the library wait list early and got it almost as soon as it was released. I don’t usually do that, but hey, Stephenson takes his time between books and this one looked interesting.

B. 50 Famous Writers Name Their Favourite Book list. I’m not sure about the provenance of this list given the hosting site, but it is an interesting list. Possibly take it with a grain of salt or two, but maybe some of these are worth checking out.

Happy Sunday reading on Christ the King Sunday.

(This means Advent begins next week!)
