Award description

Time magazine's yearly "Best Books" list was first published in 1996. The format has changed over the years, ranging from 10 to 30 books, usually categorized by fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of 2006. Children's books were added in 2008 & 2009.

When adding new books to the list, use the former entries as an example. Fiction is .30 -> .21 (with #1=.30, #10=.21) - Non-fiction is .20 -> .11 (#1 = .20 through #10=.11) and Children's is .10 to .1 (#1=.10 though #10 = .1) - this format will allow the correct display since Time ranks the books and order of display on LibraryThing is important.
