Let the Best of 2011 Lists Begin!

As we approach December, publications and blogs alike have started sharing their Best of 2011 lists. Here's a quick breakdown of the "best of" lists that I've encountered thus far. Have you found others? Share them with us in the comments section below!

As part of their "Holiday Gift Guide," The New York Times unveiled their "100 Notable Books of 2011." Featuring everything from the bestselling Tiger's Wife and the raunchy House of Holes to the heart-wrenching Blue Nights and the thought-provoking Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness, this list is now an audiobook collection on our website.

AudioFile not only lists the best audiobooks of 2011, but also the best voices, providing a well-rounded celebration of audiobooks. Dividing their selections up by a multitude of genres, including author-read, this lengthy list is also now available as a collection at

While Paste Magazine has shared their 50 Best Albums of 2011 list, Billboard is leaving it in their readers' hands. From Best Newcomer to Most Anticipated Album of 2012, visitors can vote for the best and worst of 2011. Polls close on midnight on December 8, so submit your votes now. Then visit on December 12 to view poll winners.

Want to know what flicks are fresh? Rotten Tomatoes have organized their Top 100 Movies of 2011 based on their Tomatometer Scores. Films have to have 20 or more critic reviews to be eligible for ranking.

Meanwhile, MovieFone has put together a gallery of their best flicks of 2011 so far. The gallery currently contains 25 films. However, at the end of the year, they'll update it with their final top 50 picks.

Bridesmaids made both these lists, making the film's "consider us" Variety cover even more timely. I know I'm definitely hopeful that this breakthrough comedy shines during awards season.
