Books I've Read in 2010

I was talking to a friend of mine about the 2010 A to Z Reading Challenge and decided it might be fun to keep track of the books I've read this year. Who knows? Perhaps the titles or series will catch someone's eye :)

This list is only of books and novellas I've read and finished (though if I read an entire anthology, I list only the anthology title). It's alphabetized by author's last name with anthologies and books with multiple authors listed first.
