Here are the books that I read in 2010. During the first few months of 2010, I didn’t read much. I picked up some speed during the summer. I read a total of 44 books. Standout new novels of this year include Transition by Iain M. Banks, which surprised me a lot. That book was actually better than his Culture novel Surface Detail.
Other really good books include Zero History by William Gibson, which I truly enjoyed. It made me want to buy all of his old novels and read them again. I last read them when I was a teenager and I didn’t like them all that much.
Compared to last year, I read a bit less (61 vs 44) but that’s understandable as I spent a few months reading nothing. This year, I want to read 100 books. That is not going to be easy, but it’s feasible.
