Partial Lists for OBOB 2016

Partial Lists for OBOB 2016 Below are the titles that have been confirmed for the 2016 list. The selection committee tries to announce the first half of each list by the end of January each year. By the end of February, we try to have another quarter of the list complete, with the final titles selected by the end of April. However, the selection committee is more concerned with the quality of the lists than with strict timelines. Therefore, some of the lists may not be as complete as others. Stay tuned! Please also note that book title and author name forms will be finalized in June.
