Books, in Pictures
The Independent has a regular pictorial feature on "The Best of..." various goods. Today, they feature "The Best of the New Books." I don't know about you, but I don't find such a list to be particularly helpful, when all they provide are photos of the covers of "the best" new books, 1 through 10, without any commentary explaining why these ten books are exceptional. It's also ironic that a newspaper, of all media, would opine about new books, of all things, in pictures rather than words.
