I’m a reading person, which makes me better than you (look in your heart, you know it to be true).
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to list all the books that I read in 2010 as a fond look back at the stories that were. I started this post a couple of months ago and I’m just finishing it up now.
I was too busy reading.
See what I did there?
Last year’s reading list was greatly impacted by my participation in the fabulous geeky podcast The Incomparable (I even listen to the episodes that I am not in.. that’s high praise from a self proclaimed egomaniac).
Here’s the list:
- How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
- Surface Details
- The Evolutionary Void
- The Gone-Away World
- Johannes Cabal the Necromancer
- Ship Breaker
- The God Engines
- From Hell with Love
- A Curtain Falls
- Brains: A Zombie Memoir
- In the Shadow of Gotham
- The Dream of Perpetual Motion
- The Bad Book Affair
- The Adamantine Palace
- The Man Who Loved Books Too Much
- Up in the Air
- Shades of Grey
- Speaks the Nightbird
- The City & the City
- The Windup Girl

But which do you recommend most highly? And which will you kindle loan me? 😉
That all depends on what kind of books you like to read. My favorite of that bunch has got to be the Dream of Perpetual Motion… but that’s a book that folks will either really dig or really not dig.
The one with the broadest appeal (and which I enjoyed as well) are probably The City & The City and The Windup Girl. Sadly, I didn’t get either of those via Amazon (well I bought The City & The City on Amazon but as a physical book).
My other favorite is Speaks the Nightbird… which is a mystery set in Colonial America (and it is super long… but lots of fun to read). That one is probably available in your local library (which is where I got my copy!).
