Occasionally I take a look at The Millions Blog just to see what is shaking. Today I looked at it and was surprised to see that of the top ten books in 2009 as of November Dave Eggers is on the list, twice. I'm not saying Dave Eggers isn't talented (I can't do that I have yet to finish one of his books). I am saying surely a few other possibly new authors should have had a crack at the list. David Mazzucchelli is on there twice also. I think what I'm trying to get at here is 4 spots on a list of 10 taken up by 2 authors! A lot of the rest of the list are established or foreign authors.
I guess I was just hoping for new names, or established authors who are consistently good.
