Amazon's editorial team has released its picks for 2020's best books, broken down by category and with one to rule them all.

The year's best book, in their opinion, was A Knock at Midnight: A Story of Hope, Justice, and Freedom, by Brittany K. Barnett.

The book is a recounting of how Barnett, a lawyer, was inspired to join the fight to reform the criminal justice system and its disproportionate effects on Black Americans.

The top ten overall winners:

Amazon uses its best books of the month to guide the year-end voting, and while other reviewers (professionals and amateurs) do influence their decision, sales do not.

Previous winners of the best book of the year include The Testaments, by Margaret Atwood; Educated, by Tara Westwood; Killers of the Flower Moon, by David Grann; and Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead.
