The New York Times Announces Their Picks for the 10 Best Books of 2010

By Michelle S. RSS Thu, December 2, 2010

Yesterday, the New York Times released their picks for the 10 Best Books of 2010. I haven't read all of the books on their list, but I was heartened to see that Emma Donoghue's Room made it. Room would definitely make my personal Best of 2010 list! Click here to read about why I love this book so much.

I was also pleased to see that Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff, and A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan made the list, as all three have visited Parkway Central Library this year as part of our award-winning Author Events series. Click on  their names above to listen to the podcast from their appearances at the Library; click on their book titles to view our catalog records.

I'm still pondering which books will make the cut for my personal Best of 2010 list. Which ones make it onto yours?

I'll be choosing "Room" As it sell the best price, though it's cheap, I bet it will take me a year or months to finish it. Guess I'll read it.

i don't think they have the same interest in good books as i do which is why i probably should just stick with Oprah's book club instead. But i might still check out the book "Freedom" since i have been hearing quite a bit of good reviews from it and those types of subject matter often tickle my fancy. looking for to seeing your best list for 2010 also. thanks in advance.
