Critical Linking: December 11th, 2013




This made me laugh really hard.


A few noteworthy facts we discovered while conducting the study:

  • Only three out of the 124 authors who appeared on the list during 2012 are people of color
  • No African American authors made the Top 10 Bestsellers list that we looked at in 2012

Soooo, the Top 10 New York Times Bestsellers are just not diverse. Even less than you might think.


Product Details

  • Hardcover: 208 pages
  • Publisher: Knopf (August 12, 2014)
  • Language: English

And that is confirmation of the release date of the new Haruki Murakami novel (in English at least). Also, check out how short it is.


But until then, here, in alphabetical order, are my fifty covers of 2013.

Awesome to see these great covers and a little explanation of what makes them great.
