NYT, what is it about you? (that's from Annie)

I sent this to my library system's reference librarians today-- when the paper of record begins to finally begins to give graphic novels our place in the world of best sellers.

"The New York Times has introduced weekly graphic novel (or as the Gray Lady calls them, “graphic books”) bestseller lists via its Arts Beat blog today, a huge step on the long path to legitimacy for the comics medium."

Librarians are discussing whether these weekly GN lists will drive patron requests, only time will tell.

3 lists—Graphic Books (hardcover), Graphic Books (softcover) and Manga
