Best Books of 2010: Library Journal's Top Ten

Best Books lists of 2010 are starting to be released. It's always fun to see what you've read, what you've missed, and what you can't believe made the list.

Library Journal has named its 10 best books:
  • American Terroir by Rowan Jacobsen
  • By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham
  • Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
  • How To Live, Or, a Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at an Answer by Sarah Bakewell
  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
  • The Passage by Justin Cronin
  • Room by Emma Donoghue
  • The Tiger by John Vaillant
  • The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
  • Walker Evans Decade by Decade text by James Crump (Hatje Cantz)

I've only read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which I enjoyed a great deal. I tried listening to The Passage, and couldn't make it past the first or second CD.

Are any of these books that you enjoyed?

"Freedom" is on my Christmas list. Cannot wait.
