Put These YA Titles From 2014 on Your TBR There are tons of “best of” lists floating around this time of year, and as someone who loves a good “best of” list, I delight in digging into them, trying to figure out if I agree or disagree with the choices. More, I use those lists as a way to gauge what my own year in reading looked like. With popular “best of” lists, did I read enough commercial, high-budget fiction? With more professional “best of” lists, did I read enough novels of critical acclaim or with literary merit? It shouldn’t be shocking that a lot of these lists happen to come out on or around Black Friday in the US, when shoppers are creating and executing their holiday shopping plans.

None A few weeks ago, Rioter-in-Chief Jeff O’Neal’s From Zero To Well-Read in 100 Books post nearly brought the internet crashing down. People were very, very angry, and other people (me included) were very, very bemused by those people who were very, very angry. And that wasn’t even, technically, a Top 100 list! But it did inspire Kit’s post on why “best of” lists get us all so revved up. Husqvarna AutoMower 220AC Husqvarna's AutoMower 220AC is a robotic lawn mower, and a step up from the 210C model. The main difference is that the 220AC is capable of charging itself automatically, as it can find its way back to the charging station by using a guide wire. The cutting perimeter is determined with 800ft of guide wire as well, which allows for a total working area of about 0.5 acres or 2000 square metres (without moving the guidewire). The mower has easy height adjustment, facilitated with a top-mounted rotary dial, and it also features a top-mounted LCD display for access to various custom settings. Also includes a PIN security system and anti-theft alarm. Like the 210C, this model can climb grades of up to 35% and can handle rough terrain.
