Half A Year of Reading

Time to post my favorite books of the year so far - the year being a bit more than half over and all. A few of the books listed were not published in 2010, but were read by me for the first time this year. This is a crowded bunch, but a nice one. Lots of variety, fiction and non-fiction. It's going to be very difficult to pick The Ten Best at the end of the year. I'm probably going to have to go Best Twenty. It's one of those embarassment of riches years. And still plenty more left to be read. So, here goes, in no particular order for now.
