Best Books of 2010...and win a $10 giftcard

So, here we are, already into 2011. Which reminds me, I haven't changed my calendars. Lazy weekend after partying Friday night to ring in the new year. ;-)

As we begin the year, of course our thoughts will have us thinking about last year. How many books did you read? Did your reading tastes change? Find new authors? I am sure we all have an answer to those questions, but the big one I want to know is....

What were your favorite books of 2010?

Answer that question and you'll be entered in a contest to win a $10 Amazon or Barnes & Noble egiftcard. One entry per person and I'll post the winner next Sunday night.

Good luck!
