So Many Books, So Little Time A Year of Passionate Reading
 Picture

Ott, Bill, (Ed. ) , American Library Association's Booklist Magazine  
The Book Buyer's Advisor The Definitive Guide to Discovering the Year'sBest Books, 1991 Edition
 Picture
Publisher: Triumph Books Chicago 1990.
Near Fine with no dust jacket 1st Edition Hardcover Author and title indices. The reviews included here are organized first under nonfiction and fiction and then by broad subject categories, which appear alphabetically. Ideally, of course, the volume is designed to encouratge browsing: find a subject area that interests you, and start flipping pages. For those searching for a specific book, however, the author and title indexes should ensure easy access. A note about biographies: the most difficult organizational decision an editor faces is deciding when to consider a book "biography" and when to group it with the subject most related to the life being studied. For the purposes of this book, all lives of sports figures have been classified under "sports & recreation", all lives of musicians appear under "Music", and, in general, other biographical and autobiographical works are considered "biography". Each review is prefaced by bibliographical information. Minor fading to some of the gilt. ; 096244362x 8vo - 8" to 9" tall - 8" to 9" tall; 397 pages; 22 nonfiction and 3 fiction reviews. From the introduction: Readers usually find out about books from newspapers and mass-market magazines, where very little space is available for reviews. To supplement those sources, we offer this one-volume survey of the previous year's publishing output. In the course of one year, "Booklist Magazine" usually reviews about 7000 books. It has been whittled down to 1000 for inclusion in this premier edition. Such books are a treasure worth looking for and a delight to find. 11607
