NYTBR Ten Best

Following up on their recent selection of the 100 most notable titles of 2008, the NYT Book Review editors today narrow it down to the ten best books of 2008.

All the titles still have hold lists in the large libraries I checked, even the titles from earlier in the year.

The two titles with the heaviest reserves, at 5 to 1, are also owned in the lowest quantities.
