Best Books 2012: According Some Other People

Many of us have a brand new stack of books to add to our shelves, carefully selected, or in some cases, re-gifted, by well meaning relatives. Whatever the case may be for you, we hope you're getting a couple of minutes to get started.

If your holiday bounty is devoid of at least a few page turners, here are a few best of lists to spend your Chanukah gelt on:

NPR has a whole collection of lists from romance to young adult reading that never gets old, no matter how hold you are.

The New York Times kept things simple with a concise top ten list.

The Chicago Public Library is in the mix with best books for teens out this year.

Staff at The New Yorker weighed in too, with favorites for each writer.

Stay tuned for Book Club's Best Of list!!!
