Another List I'm Not On

The NYT list of notable books.

  1. You oughta be on it, Bill. Quite a few titles by Times staffers on this list. I read 4 of the 100, which is a better average than usual for me.

    As usual, the elite publishers have an armlock on the list, as is standard for the Times. Farrar, Straus leads, with Knopf, Viking, Scribners, etc., publishing the rest. God forbid that a book by an outsider or a little-known publisher should find a berth at the New York Times. The coziness is amusing, to say the least, but not unexpected in a place where the editors and reviewers lunch on a daily basis.

    I saw that yesterday and was going to send it to you but didn't want to rub it in.

    But what do they know anyway? I'll take Sheriff Rhodes over most of the others.

    Oh, and I've read 2 of 100 so far.
