Reading 2010

Following are the books I've read this year, August 1 to December 31, all cover-to-cover unless noted. Those might be reference books or DNFs - Did Not Finish - books whose call to "read me" kept getting fainter or fainter, or that I simply didn't like or decided weren't worth it. I figure that tells something about me, too!
