2010 Reading Roundup

Per tradition, it's time for my annual wrap-up of all the books I read in 2010. For some reason, I had a crappy reading year...I either got bogged down in books and they took me waaaaaaay longer than they should have to read, or I got distracted by other things, or so many of them were just....duds and I got unbelievably stuck. 2011 better be a better bookish year! :-) Now, on with the stats....

Number of books read in 2009: 127
Number of books read in 200 (for comparison): 178
Average of books read per month: 10.6
Average of books read per week: 2.46
Daily average: 1 book read every 2.85 days
Percent of fiction read: 92.5%
Percent of nonfiction read: 7.5%
Number of audiobooks "read": 17

And now, for the best books of the year (in my humble opinion, of course!), in author alphabetical order...
