Best of 2009?

A little pre-end of year post whilst I try and gear up to a longer round up of the year - and maybe even the decade! But every lit section is already proclaiming their best books of the year/decade:
The New York Times Book Review has listed its top ten books of 2009 here
Earlier in the year Spread the Word had its Top 10 Books to talk about here, another here and, from The Guardian, the decade's best unread books . One of my own favourites of the past year had to be Colm Toibin's Brooklyn. I would also choose Francis Wheen's Strange Days Indeed as the non-fiction choice. I doubt also that I'll be getting through current reading matter, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Joan of Arc before the year's out!
