Books 2010

I realized I never posted my books from 2010.  I frequently go back to them when I need information, so it would be remiss not to get them out here, even if 2010 was my worst year of reading since 2000.  I blame becoming a manager.  It's not conducive to fun reading.  You'll note I have a 5, a 3, and a 0 so even with as few books as I had, there were some clunkers.  I wonder if Mac will notice I gave him a 6.  I noticed he fixed all the typos with an editor after I read it, and that was one of my biggest complaints.  So I stand by my number because of the version I had.  It's not just about plot, it's about consistently of editing so I know who's who. The best grown-up book I read all year was The Magicians, which I can thank Mean Mr. Mustard for recommending.  I hope I made up for it in 2011 by recommending The Gone-Away World which Kevin had keyed me to.
