Some Reading Recommendations from 2010

Posted on: 01/01/11

As I did last year around this time, I figure I’ll post a list of some books I read over the past twelve months that y’all might enjoy. These are not the only books I read in 2010 — they’re just the ones that, for whatever reason, really jumped out at me. There are no children’s books, of course (see here for why), but the list does include some smart thrillers, a great graphic novel, some thought-provoking non-fiction, a book about math (oh, just read it!), and more. There’s something for just about everyone.

If you try any of them, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the time spent.
