Books Read in 2010

For the third consecutive year, I've kept a list of books read. I count listening to a book as reading, and such titles are included on my list with a (CD) designation.

My least favorite for 2010 is The Last Time I Saw Paris by Elizabeth Adler, for what reason I no longer remember. I know it is my least favorite because my list includes a minus sign after the title.

My favorite is George Washington's Great Gamble: And the Sea Battle That Won the American Revolution by James Nelson. Nelson's research and writing make history come alive. I learned details I never before knew.

My complete list follows. What was your favorite read in 2010?

  1. Susan,

    Thanks for the kind words about my book, George Washington's Great Gamble. I'm delighted that you enjoyed it. It is particularly gratifying to me to hear such comments from a librarian. Writing books such as GWGG would not be possible without the support of librarians - in my case the great staff at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, Maine.

    Thanks again.
