I was perusing a few of my favorite web sites and found some interesting holiday suggestions and book lists. Here are a few links of interest…
I love to check out the Indie lists because they always feature a few titles that don’t get all the hot media attention. I consider these quiet giants to be a little edgier than their highly publicized counterparts.

For a breakdown of what the New York Times deems the literary best of 2009, try 100 Notable Books of 2009.

Take some time to hit News from Nicolas published by Ann Arbor’s Nicola’s Books. It includes a Gift Guide and Upcoming Events.
