Top Ten Final

A Woman in the Top Ten

Publishers Weekly‘s selection of 2010’s Top Ten books arrives today, joining Library Journal‘s and the Amazon editors’ lists announced last week.

Unlike last year, when PW‘s Top Ten did not include a single woman, half of the titles this year are by women.

As we have come to expect, there is very little consensus. Just three titles appear on all three lists. Moreover, only one of the National Book Award finalists made these lists; the title by PW’s cover author, Patti Smith.

Below are the titles, followed by links to EarlyWord stories about them.

ON ALL THREE LISTS

  • Freedom by Jonathan Franzen (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) — #6 on Amazon, also on LJ, PW FREEDOM IS #1

ON TWO LISTS

ONLY ON AMAZON’s TOP TEN

ONLY ON PW‘s TOP TEN

ONLY ON LJ‘s TOP TEN
