My Reading Tastes Redeemed!

Well, now. This...

If you share more than ten books on the New York Times Notable Books of the Year list...then you, too, have been bought out by corporate interests. With almost no books from small presses, only a handful of books by women, a whole lot of books by their own writers, and almost every single book published by one division of Random House or another, the New York Times Notable Books of the Year is quite possibly the most predictable best-of list put out every year.

...makes me feel a lot better about this.

Thanks, Jessa. Your thoughtful words are even more uplifting than a Christmas card, with the added bonus of not including the dreaded "here's a superficial account of what we did this year" letter.
