With 66 bookstores in airports all over North America, you may know Hudson Booksellers from your travels. They have now decided that it is time to help busy travelers select the books they sell, announcing their picks of the best books of 2007. It's a pretty long list, with selections in the fields of fiction, non-fiction, children's, and--aha!
* Five Minds for the Future by Howard Gardner * Microtrends by Mark Penn * The No Asshole Rule by Robb Sutton * The Black Swan by Nasim Nicholas Taleb * Wikinomics by Don TapscottYou'll notice two of the books, Wikinomics and The Black Swan, were also on the FT/Goldman Sachs Award shortlist, and The No Asshole Rule won The Quill Award in the business category. I think it's a great idea to put this list out, and the categories here should cater well to different kinds of travelers. They even offer two additional categories to extend the list for more voracious readers. One is called "Books We Love", and the other is "Newsworthy/Noteworthy". If you'd like to see the titles in the other categories, you can find it on their website. You should also begin seeing the list posted in their stores beginning December 1st.
