2010 Book List...

Looking at this list while getting ready to clear it to start over for the new year I realized I read A LOT of books last year so I decided to post it here so I could take some time look it over and meditate on what these books had to offer. While some were better than others, they all deeply moved me and left me pondering ways in which to improve my life and the world around me.

That's quite a list. Looks like you enjoy non-fiction a bit.

I don't even think I could make a list of what I read this year. It would be interesting to try though.
