The New York Times escolhe os melhores livros de 2019

Ao mesmo tempo das festas de fim de ano e da temporada de férias, o "New York Times Book Review", o suplemento literário semanal do famoso The New York Times, acaba de publicar sua tradicional lista dos melhores livros deste ano que termina, “100 Notable Books of 2019”. Para a Penguin Random House, a lista é mais uma prova de um ano de sucesso em best-sellers: 45 dos 100 títulos da lista do gênero "Ficção" and "Não-ficção" foram publicados pelo grupo editorial da Bertelsmann - nunca havia sido alcançado um resultado tão positivo. Além disso, alguns dias antes, o The New York Times escolheu os dez melhores livros do ano ("10 Best Books of 2019"). Cinco dos dez títulos selecionados também pertencem ao catálogo da Penguin Random House.
