Steve Harvey, thanks to his #1 NY TIMES BESTSELLER you read about in the previous post is all over the place these days. Just a few days ago the venerable Wall Street Journal picked up on the story, highlighting how Mr. Harvey has utilized his radio show and all-around popularity to propel his tome on the mindset of men into a bestselling book.

2008 has come and gone and we're all a year older without even realizing it. (Well maybe you have realized it, but sometimes it's best when reality is suspended).
But on to books. Magically, some news outlets still reserve some space for book coverage and they like to make giant lists at the end of the year of all of their "top" books of 2008. We're excited the following have gotten some additional end of year ink:
WASHINGTON: The Making of the American Capital by Fergus Bordewich got included in Washington Post ubercritic Jonathan Yardley's fave books of 2008.
IDA: A SWORD AMONG LIONS by Paula Giddings landed on both the Washington Post Book World and Chicago Tribune best books of 2008 list.
FROM HARVEY RIVER by Lorna Goodison made the Washington Post Book World Best Books List.
THE NAKED TRUTH by Marvelyn Brown was one of AOL Black Voices' top 10 stories of 2008 generating over 1,000 comments!
