Blogs on Books

It's about time!  The New York Times has released a list of the most blogged about-books for 2005. You should check it out.

Here are the top five:
1) FREAKONOMICS: A ROGUE ECONOMIST EXPLORES THE HIDDEN SIDE OF EVERYTHING By Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner  
2) HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE (BOOK 6) By J. K. Rowling (Arthur A. Levine Books, July 2005)
3) BLINK: THE POWER OF THINKING WITHOUT THINKING  By Malcolm Gladwell (Little, Brown, January 2005)
4) THE WORLD IS FLAT: A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY By Thomas L. Friedman (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, April 2005)
5) GETTING THINGS DONE: THE ART OF STRESS-FREE PRODUCTIVITY By David Allen (Penguin Books, January 2003)

Now maybe it's me. But, there appears to be a definite slant toward the liberal reader with this list. No? 

Granted, I've read only half of the books (not all) and  I will leave Thomas Friedmans', The World Is Flat, up for debate. But it begs the question, "are most bloggers liberals?"
