Kate S | 5912 comments 20.8 Best of 2015 Jama's Task: Read a book from one of these year end "best of" lists: NYT Notable or NPR's Book Concierge.

Kate S | 5912 comments Sorry, not yet. We are expecting it this week. As soon as it is released, we will post it.

Sam (theliteraryhooker) | 1008 comments Very happy about this task! I looked through the NYT list when it was released and realized I have quite a few of these on my shelves that I haven't gotten around to yet!

Bea | 1502 comments This is the only task for which I have not yet chosen a book. I looked at the list enough to say that I did not want to read poetry or non-fiction, but I could not decide on any other books as I know nothing about any of them. I also went to NPR (I know the list is not yet up) and looked at books they had reviewed. I did not recognize any of them. HELP!

I obviously do not read in the same literary style as the NYT or NPR. Can someone recommend any fiction for me to try?

Kazen | 619 comments If you like genre fiction you may want to wait until the NPR list comes out - they're good about covering a wide range of tastes, better than NYT. Looking at last year's selection there's sci-fi, romance, fantasy, mysteries, and more. And the way their Concierge is set up makes it easy to find something that you've never heard of that you have to read immediately. :)

Beth Robinson (bethrobinson) | 1099 comments I'm getting Between the World and Me from the library. It's nonfiction but it just sounds like a valuable viewpoint to experience for the expansion of my own mind.
