This week marks the announcements of Best Books of 2013 by a variety of sources, Goodreads, NY Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Amazon, Slate, Publisher’s Weekly, etc.

While MillersTime readers will have to wait until the end of December to see what other readers of this blog most enjoyed (you all are getting your lists together this weekend, aren’t you?), I thought I’d collect in one place what others are listing.

My personal favorite list, other than MillersTime of course, is the one announced by Goodreads, the on-line site where readers post books they’ve read and what they think about them. It is the only major book awards decided by readers. Almost two million votes were cast on the Goodreads site, and you can see how many readers liked various books when you click on a particular category (Fiction, Mystery & Thriller, Historical Fiction, etc.).

Check these out while you’re waiting for the 2013 MillersTime list:
