My favorite books are just that — my favorite books. Oh, sometimes they may be things that I think will be on awards and lists. Sometimes it’s that something in the book captures my imagination or spirit. I like to say “favorite” because these books are on my personal list; they may not be on yours. I also call it books “read in 2010” because I sometimes review older books, and, well, it just seemed unfair that a book would be kept off the list because of its publication date!
