The New York Times Book Review has revealed the winner of its reader poll on the best book of the past 125 years.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee won, probably to no one’s great surprise, but by a “narrow” margin (no further specifics provided).
But what does “greatest” mean? That answer is as individual as our preferences, so the NY Times included a sampling of why readers nominated books.
Also in the grand reveal: stats that illustrate just how varied the nominations were, lists of the most-nominated authors, and a sampling of the not-as-expected nominations.
