Best Books of 2009

As the year comes to a close, take a moment to review the  King County Library System’s Best Books of 2009. The books on this list can also make great (very) last minute holiday gifts! Compiled by the Material Selection Team, the list covers six categories:
  • Adult Fiction
  • Adult Nonfiction
  • Teen Books
  • Children’s Fiction
  • Children’s Nonfiction
  • Children’s Picture Books
  • Fireworks

    Sweetness Sadly, I’ve only read one of the books on this list, Alan Bradley’s “The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie”, as it was also a Maiden Voyage selection through Elliot Bay Books. (This program also makes a great “last minute” holiday gift!)  “Sweetness” is a delightful book that I would have also loved as a teen girl.  I can’t wait to read the upcoming Flavia de Luce mysteries!

    Lists from 2007 and 2008 are also available.

    *Sigh* So many books, so little time!
