All the Best Books Compilation: The Final Word on the Best of 2014

Beginning last November, you saw dozens of lists claiming to identify the best books of 2014. But when you think about it, that’s a big claim. Had the writer of the article read a sizable fraction of the books published in that year? Not likely.

A few websites even attempted a compilation of “best books” mentions, but most stopped far short of considering enough sources to be considered truly authoritative.
