Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) This is the "fiction" half of the list only, isn't it?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Looks like it to me.


message 3: by Sara Grace (new)

Sara Grace I think someone should add the Nonfiction. Just saying...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Non-fiction list added.


message 5: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Feb 21, 2011 06:35AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Are The Book Thief and Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption really on the original list? I can't seem to find them there, and we currently DO have 102 books, which suggests we have two add-ons not actually selected by the editors of the NYT ...


message 6: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Feb 21, 2011 07:09AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads If it's non-fiction and I didn't vote for it, it's not on the list. I think Pauline got all the fiction, and I didn't see The Book Thief.

ETA: Book Thief was published in 2007, at any rate, so I doubt it's on this list on that account.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Neither you nor Pauline voted for either of the two books. Double checked on the NYT website, and after again not finding them there, took the liberty to delete them.


message 8: by Danna (new)

Danna I think that the NYT lists of books are one of The Best! Truly, the books I invite online, usually comes from the NYT pages.

So true. The Book Thief is such a huge bestseller, and I have heard that it is also a beautiful, beautiful books, categorized as a must-read and should be made into a movie. You may add it, though.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Seems to have crept back up past 100 books - I'll prune.


message 11: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Apr 01, 2011 11:35AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Deleted for not being on the Times' list:

The Book Thief
The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) And we're up to 103 books yet again. WHAT is it that people do not understand about "PLEASE DON'T ADD ANY BOOKS"??


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for not being on the Times' list:

Cricket Til I Die, by Upneet Grover
Lover Awakened, by J.R. Ward
Truly, Madly, Deeply, by Faraaz Kazi


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Thanks! (Sigh.) I'd have hunted them down myself but didn't really have a lot of time this afternoon. If there's a way I can reciprocate, do let me know ...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads No problem!


message 16: by Shaun (new)

Shaun Thanks for the list. Man but was "Solar" a stinker! Not Ian McEwan's best. I really found the main character loathsome . . . he reminded me of me back in the day. Ugh!


message 17: by Abcdarian (new)

Abcdarian Removed for being published in 1970: Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Hope that was correct thing to do!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Deleted for not being on the list:

Table 21, by T. Rafael Cimino
Mid Ocean, by T. Rafael Cimino
Every Man Dies Alone, by Hans Fallada
New York: The Novel, by Edward Rutherford
