A Book List Bonanza

I don't think that I've ever met a book addict who is not also a lover of book lists: Top 10s, Prize Winners, Best Sellers, All-Time Favorites, etc.

Well, book addicts, I just stumbled upon a goldmine of book lists over at The Guardian so get ready to have some fun. Here is the indexed list, and here are a few of my favorites:

Top 10 Books About Civil War

Top 10 Books About Troubled Families

Top 10 Asian Crime Fiction

Top 10 Books About Outsiders

Top 10 Books About Forgetting

Top 10 Short Books

Top 10 Books Set in Japan

Top 10 Psychological Thrillers

Top 10 Books in Which Things End Badly

Top 10 Literary Murders
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I've already spent way too much time browsing the lists today - but who can resist this kind of thing? The lists go back all the way to November 1999 and there are 250 of them so far.

Have fun.
