We're always eyeing lists around town around the holidays to see various picks for the best books of the year. Now Amazon has come up with a way to trump the competition by coming up with a best-of list just halfway through the year. It's kind of nice for readers to have a credible resource to go to without having to wait until the holidays. It's an eclectic list that covers a lot of ground. There's definitely something here for a varied set of interests. The nonfiction book I've been wanting to read for a few months now is the Rebecca Skloot, which has been a big critical and commercial success. Do any of our readers have other ideas for great books from 2010 that aren't on this list? We'd love to hear about them.
