Slate's Best Reads for 2009
submitted May 2010 by BookMan

I enjoy the book reviews at Slate.com, and this was their compilation of their writers/editors' choices for the best titles of 2009. Although the libraries don't own a few of these, I figured readers can use Interlibrary Loan for the titles not available locally. Quite a few interesting reads here!
