It's a little past the season for those retrospective best lists of 2010. And I'm not ever lacking in books on my TBR (to be read) pile. But it's the middle of winter and I need something new, fresh, and with a different perspective.
With that in mind, I dug out the New York Times Best Books of 2010 list. I haven't actually read any of these book, but I love reading the blurbs. You might find something there to help you beat the midwinter blues.
