How does the NYT Book Review do it?

Pamela Paul was on reddit yesterday answering questions about the NYT Book Review.  must read for biliophiles.

Here's a sample:
End of the year lists can have nothing to do with how books were reviewed.
“It is often the case that books we like don’t necessarily get hugely favorable notice in the Book Review. One recent case: Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See got a negative review in the Book Review. But we still named it one of the 10 Best Books of the year at the time. Our 10 Best is when we editors get to exert our own opinions, no matter what our reviewers say.”
NOW do you wanna read this? It's a very good piece.
