The Steve Jobs biography is Amazon's bestselling book of the year. Couple of fantasy titles on the top 10 list, A Dance with Dragons and Inheritance. This goes part of the way towards confirming a suspicion I had some time ago: that the Amazon "best of" list for fantasy and sci-fi is based on sales, not quality. Or even on good reviews from readers.
It would be, I think, difficult to come up with a top 10 list unless you'd read everything that came out in a year. I certainly don't have time for that. Maybe the Klausner-bot could pretend to. My own compromise for a top 10 list will be choosing from among the books I read in 2011, or at least since I started writing reviews on this blog in May or June, because at least I have a list of those on my reviews page. These books may not have been published or released in 2011, but I don't care. This is my blog and that's how I'm going to do things!
