These favorites come from Shirley, PeterL, and Renee. Shirley left us many years ago, but has happily returned to the fold this year; she now works our administration and helps out around ABC Amsterdam, too. PeterL is ABC Amsterdam’s Horror, Manga, and Gay & Lesbian buyer (and hopefully over his True Blood obsession by now). Renee is ABC The Hague’s Poetry and Tattoo books buyer, and has read ALL of the Science Fiction & Fantasy section’s books. Srsly.
We would love to hear about what YOUR favorite reads of 2011 were, too! They don’t have to be books published in 2011, just read in 2011. Please send your top 5 to firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include your mailing address so we can send you an ABC gift voucher as a thank you. We’ll be publishing your Top 5s at the beginning of 2012, so you have the rest of the month to hand them in. Thank you to those who have already mailed them in!
And now, without further ado… the lists!
