I was updating an online profile on a website, and realized that it had been a few years since I updated the books section. So I went through and linked to my yearly best lists putting the absolute "best" next to the link.

Looking at the list, something struck me. Here's the list:

2005: Kindred by Octavia Butler
2006: Time and Again by Jack Finney and Secret Identity by Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen
2007: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon
2008: The History Of Love by Nicole Krauss and With The Light by Keiko Tobe
2009: Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji
2010: The Night Counter by Alia Yunis
2011: (Small list, no "best")

While my overall lists of books are rather varied in content, how many of my "best-bests" are love stories at their core? When you strip away the genre constraints or what have you?

I hadn't really noticed that until now.
