Amy Hertz at Huffington Post: It's the battle of the "best of" lists, movies, television, and of course books. We've seen Publishers Weekly, now Amazon:
Welcome to the Best Books of 2009, our choices for the very best out of a year's worth of reading. You'll find great books for readers of all ages and interests in our top 100 editors' and customers' lists, as well as our year-end top 10s in dozens of categories. Topping our own list is our book of the year, Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann's gorgeous and moving novel of New York City in the '70s, set against the backdrop of Philippe Pettit's Twin Tower tightrope crossing.
