Books I Read in 2010

Riding the Metro to work typically affords me 20-30 minutes each way for reading. It’s something I really like about commuting via public transportation. This year was not typical, though, as I spent most of it working from home part-time and looking after the baby. With no commute and no lunch breaks it felt like I didn’t have much time for reading, yet I managed to get through sixteen books.

I think World War Z was probably my favorite of the year, though the Stieg Larssons were a lot of fun. I read the two James Bond books on a short holiday in Florida over the summer and like them quite a lot. Outliers was filled with interesting tidbits but I found Blink to be overrated. Our Sentence is Up required a complete reread of The Invisibles, which took some time but I think I finally have a handle on that series now.
