books I have read in 2010

A Listmania! list by P. Sciver (providence, ri)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Do you like reading the New York Times book review and look for weird books and struggle with the books the critics rave about? Did you give up on Chronic City? Did you really want to like A Gate at the Stairs but could not get into it? Were you disappointed in Sunnyville because Carter Beat the Devil was so epic and amazing and one of your favorite recent books? Did you love Hocus Pocus but kind of hate Galapagos? How do you feel about George Saunders? I think he is a genius and so do the people at the McArthur Foundation. How do you feel about A.M. Homes? Music for Torching = brilliant and I still think about This Book Will Save Your Life. Oh, I almost forgot to mention how awesome Home Land and The Ask are by Sam Lipsyte. Do you like Non-fiction written by chuck klosterman and not mind his fiction too much? Actually, Downtown Owl was pretty great. How about David Foster Wallace? I like his non-fiction. If any of your thoughts are similar to any of these, you may enjoy some of the books on these lists. Enjoy and feedback is always welcome.This is list of books I have read in 2010..This is a way for me to remember what I have read during the year. Someday I can look back on my lists and remember all the fun times I had with these books..."
