2008 Scope Notes Reader Poll: Dec. 12-19
It’s no secret that, after cardigans and bifocals, lists would come in third for Thing Closest to the Hearts of Librarians. If you don’t believe me, put on your ‘focals (cool way I just learned to say bifocals) and read that first sentence again. It’s a list (unfortunately, that was unplanned). As the sun sets on 2008, I encourage you to take a look back by voting for your favorite books of the year in the first annual Scope Notes Reader Poll. It’s a quick, three question survey. I’ll keep it open for one week and then share what shakes out.

You may be wondering how I selected books for the poll. Well, I’ve been looking at every year-end, best-of list I can get my hands on. Books that showed up multiple times were added. A more diplomatic method I could not conjure up.
