Books I read in 2010

I added that blog element 'books read' list thing cos I like to keep score. Yeah, that's right people who didn't pay up in MS Read'a'thon '80; I still keep lists. And I got one of who you are too.

Great minds etc. ...

So this list is the 2010 list since I am restarting books read list for 2011.

The order is earliest read in 2010 to last.


I should italicise the titles but I simply cannot be fucked. I am on holiday (1).
