Books Read 2010

Here’s a reverse-chronological list of all the books I’ve read in 2010. My rating system is out of five stars, but it’s not a comparison system, so all of the five stars aren’t of the same value, all of the four stars aren’t the same, etc. It’s more about my experience as I was reading the book-were there flaws? Did I absolutely love it and wish it wouldn’t end? Did I fear that it never would end? That being said, here’s my rough guideline; in practice, the line between 5s and 4s gets blurred a lot. (5=Extraordinary. I will immediately try to acquire other books by this author, 4=Very strong book, good writing style, really enjoyed, 3=A good read, possibly had one or two really strong areas, but the rest was average OR parts of the book were great and other parts were just miserable, 2=There were some major flaws in the book, but it had some good points as well, 1=I regret ever having even considered reading this book). All titles are linked to Powell’s (I’m not an associate or anything). New linking policy as of early June: I’ll be linking to the publisher’s page on the book. Mainly, this is because I want to pay more attention to imprints and editors, and this is a simple way for me to do so. :) If I’ve discussed it on the blog, that’s noted and linked in parentheses following the author.

    Thirty books just in the first month? And not lightweights, either. Wow. I routinely read 200+ a year and thought I was ahead of the pack. And it would take me considerably more than one day to get through Goethe! :)

      It was a short Goethe! I bet it wouldn’t take you long; it was super-readable. :) I’m unemployed, so I’ve got more time to read than most. ;)

        if I’m unemployed I won’t be able to do 30 books a month! You’re amazing! ;)

    All I can say is this: Holy cow! I think the highest number of books I’ve read in a whole year was just into the 60s. So far this year, I’ve averaged about a book a week, which is pretty good for me. I tend to catch up in the summer :) Keep up the great/quick reading!!

      I’ve got a lot more spare time than most people! :)

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
