List Year's Best

The Best Books I Read in 2010

This has been an abysmal year for me in terms of pleasure reading: I read a mere 18 books. The reason for this low count is that I’ve spent the entire year researching and then writing my dissertation, which I hope to finish up in early 2011. So I’m looking forward to 2011 being a better reading year for me.

Here are the best of those 18 books that I read this year (listed alphabetically by author):

Bradley, Alan. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

Brooks, Geraldine. People of the Book

Lamb, Wally. I Know This Much Is True

Lamb, Wally. Wishin’ and Hopin’

Larsson, Stieg. The Girl Who Played with Fire

Larsson, Stieg. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest

Skloot, Rebecca. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
