You don’t have to consult more than one source to get the results of all of the best-books-of-the-year lists in one spreadsheet. For the third consecutive year, I’ve been compiling all of the results, counting up all the votes, from all of the major review sources into one “megalist.”
So far, I’ve compiled about 50 best-of-the-year lists and major awards, with at least that many more still to come. The first installment, however, is now available at my other blogging home, Blogging for a Good Book. There is also a much more detailed analysis on that site about my criteria for inclusion and how the list is organized. You are encouraged to download, share, re-sort, and re-purpose the megalist in print or online, as long as you provide a credit for Neil Hollands at Blogging for a Good Book, http://bfgb.wordpress.com.
Beginning next week, I’ll be analyzing the results here on Book Group Buzz and posting updates as additional sources are compiled into the list. If you can’t find a good book on this list, you just aren’t trying!
