The Best Books of 1015

Kindle was kind enough to notify me that the best books of 2015 were a mere click away. I laughed thinking I would be more interested in the best books of 1015. Unfortunately Google could tell me nothing about what those books might have been. I was able to find, however, that there is a book existing from 1008. It's the Leningrad Codex: the oldest, complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible in Hebrew. The picture below is its cover. It's a real work of art. I think it's fair to say, "They just don't make books like that today."
