Time Magazine’s Top 10 Fiction Books

  • Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
  • A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
  • Skippy Dies by Paul Murray
  • The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
  • Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon
  • Wilson by Daniel Clowes
  • Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes
  • How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin
  • Faithful Place by Tana French

This list just came out this month.  Three of the books were Collectible Books of the Month, Skippy Dies, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet and Matterhorn.  I wrote early about The Passage though I did not expect signed firsts editions to be expensive and they are not.

I issued a post the day after Lord of Misrule won the National Book Award.  I wrote about Freedom and two of the others were on our ratings list.

I’ve thought about buying How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. I may do that if I find an inexpensive signed first.

The only book I know nothing about is Wilson.  I’ll research that book and see if it has collectible potential.
