On the Sem Coop’s Best of 2009

In Chicago on December 2, 2009 at 5:29 am

My local independent bookstore, the Seminary Co-Op / 57th Street Books announced their “Best of 2009” list this week.  Check it out!

Unfortunately, I haven’t read any of their recommended books yet, although I do have Nick Hornby’s latest on order at the Chicago Public Library.

Besides Hornby’s book, the other books they listed that caught my eye were “Green Metropolis” which seems to be arguing for population density (i.e. urban living) as an environmental good and David Byrne’s “The Bicycle Diaries“.
