To celebrate their five-year anniversary, the independent booksellers of the American Booksellers Association cast their ballots for the titles they most enjoyed hand-selling over the past five years. The result was the The Best of Book Sense From the First Five Years.

There are two crime fiction titles in the "Adult Fiction" category: The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold (which I hear is kinda, sorta a mystery).

Call me a plebian, but I haven't read either of those, or anything else on the list either. I have, however, read The Hobbit, which makes the "Children's" list. So there!
