New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2010

Today’s New York Times Sunday Book Review section carries their list of 100 Notable Books of 2010. I note with some dismay that I can find not one of their chosen tomes in my own list of books I have read this past year (see my “What I’ve Read In 2010” sidebar on my blog site), but I see several in their list that I intend to read in 2011. I’m particularly interested in “How To Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe“, “American Subversive“, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” and “Life.”

Almost as interesting as NYT’s choices is their Books Blog post of November 24, 2010 explaining HOW the 100 are chosen. However, it’s not the explanation of their methodology (which is, as they freely admit, rather subjective) that holds my interest; rather, it is the comments that contain the titles of books NOT included which piques my interest. That and the fact that only 18 people commented.

Have you read any of the New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2010?
