Referrals Program: Yearly Top List

In June 2009, I joined the Referrals Program with different online sellers; this allows me to see where the people goes to browse after leaving my Journal. It is still a surprise month after month, people tend to be interested on the most different topics and objects (many more than only books)

Some books were meteors, only 1 month in the list, some others appeared month after month. I decided to post the yearly Top List so that you can better understand the trend, and of course, find out a title that maybe you missed in the past year. Congrats to all the authors, I'd love to post all of them, but it would be really a HUGE list; to allow a better browsing I divided it in Fiction and Non Fiction (i.e. essays, memories, art books and movies).

I am astonished at how many of your top 20 I have read and have in my e-bookshelf. But then again, they were good. There were a few that I was surprised weren't in the top few, but I can't argue too heavily with what made the cut. I'm not a fan of Amazon, so there are a few of your list that I can't get (if it's not at Barnes & Noble I won't buy it), but I still ended up buying a few more just because they sounded good.

You're horrible for my budget!!! :D
