best books of 2014

Here is another list of best books for the year 2014. This time the list is compiled by the journal of Wallstreet. A streetname dating back to the Dutch days of New Amsterdam, it was called Walstraat. There are other Dutch remnants in this New Yorkplace. Harlem is named after a the Dutch town Haarlem. Brooklyn used to be the Dutch village Breukelen. This shows the importance of knowing a bit about your history. That is what an African-rooted writer did when she wrote a novel that is listed with the 10 best fiction books, eventhough this book has quite a bit of nonfiction in it.
