An alternative to that other list

In response to Kitty's post about the NY Times "100 Notable Books of 2007" list, I'd like to offer up this alternative:
CRITICAL MASS: Introducing the NBCC's Best Recommended

Although the list is one-seventh the length, I've read twice as many books on it. (1 x 2 = 2...how sad!)

Edit: Somehow I counted wrong, and I've actually read three books from the NY Times list...but still! (2 / 3 = 2/3)

Oh man, I'm even worse at that list! I need a populist list...ooohh, I've read five of Amazon's 100 Best Books of 2007! Actually, their list is pretty good, not quite as full of literary fiction as the NBCC or even NYT, but some good books!

Oh my god, I put an exclamation point after every sentence in that post. Time to go to bed.
