NPR's Best Books

What do you think about this list?

It's just one man's opinion, and not a very informed opinion at that, but still....six women authors on a Best Of list? Too bad this list wasn't confined to a private blog.

Actually, there are 7. :-)

I dunno. He states very clearly that this is not an informed or subjective list and notes up front that he tends to read male. I'm OK with a list when it comes with a disclosure like that. He's just stating his favorite books. And many of my favorites are on that list.

Right--seven; thanks. What bothers me is that it's "NPR's" best of list. I like a lot of those on his list, too. NPR should do "Best of" list by a woman.

Good thinking, Amy. Some would have us believe gender is more important than content.
