Books

These are most of the books I read in 2010 … I may have read 10-20 more. 50 percent of those would have been dog books. Sadly, I abandoned updating my LibraryThing account in July, so I haven’t kept track very carefully. You could also toss another 20 or so more on the heap for started-significantly-but-didn’t-finish.

Anyway, books! My favorites from 2010 were “Sacred Hearts” by Sarah Dunant; “The Secret History of Moscow” by Ekaterina Sedia; “The Shadow Year” by Jeffrey Ford; “Tender Morsels” by Margo Lanagan; “Mistress of the Art of Death” by Ariana Franklin; “The Tenderness of Wolves” by Stef Penney, “Her Fearful Symmetry” by Audrey Niffenegger; and number 1 with a bullet: “Big Machine” by Victor LaValle.

I’ve surely forgotten something, though…

The Favoritest

One would think that if you read all the bloody time, adore books, read some of them over and over, and over, and have bought several more than five times because you keep lending and losing them — then you wouldn’t be left with your mouth hanging open when someone asks what your favorite books are.

One would be wrong.  Because you (and by you I mean I) do seem to stand there gaping and blinking nearly every time the question arises: Hence the Favoritest, where I will attempt over time to add every book that is my most favoritest.

(One would think that you could only have a single most favoritest, but one would be wrong.)
