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.
Best of the year list, in June!
