Yesterday, the industry pub, Library Journal announced their first ever “Top Ten Best Books List.”
And we weren’t surprised to see two Lambda favorites on this list — Michael Cunningham’s By Nightfall (reviewed by June Thomas last month) and Emma Donoghue’s Room — since these are two books we’ve followed over the past year.

“We can guarantee that each of these books offers a tremendous reading experience, says Brian Kenney, Editorial Director, Library Journal.
