At the wonderful suggestion of fellow LT member sqdancer, I am re-posting a thread I started in
the Book Talk Group. If you guys want book lists then boy do I have some list for you!

With 2008 winding down lots of "Best Books of 2008" lists have been rolling out of late and I have been keeping a bookmarks folder of the urls and thought I would share what I have so far. If anyone stumbles across a new one please share!
