Largehearted Boy compiles jaw-dropping list of lists: best books of 2009

Racking your brain for a suitable gift for a fellow book lover? Here is the ultimate resource.

Blogger Lighthearted Boy has taken every online “best of 2009” book list available and aggregated them into one jaw-dropping mother list of nearly 300 entries.   

From every corner of the world and covering every possible interest, the year-end favorites are here.

Be forewarned, however, that this list (or a similar one he’s done for music) could take a serious bite out of one’s shopping time. 

How can you scroll by Top Atheist Books (from Free Infidel) or Top Selling Books in South Africa (Stiletto Online)?  And you might not be in the market for Old Musty Books (enjoyable books for reasons other than the story) or Best Jewish Picture Books (Tablet), but somewhere in this gold mine of information hides the perfect gem for the bibliophile in your life — or yourself.
