Compiling the Best Books of 2010

As I’ve done for three years now, I’ve begun to compile all of those Best Books of the Year choices into one spreadsheet. When I’m done, you’ll be able to see how many awards and best of the year votes all of your 2010 favorites have received. This year, I’m adding a note after each item on the list so that you can track the various sources that voted for each book.

Thousands of books will get mentions, but a few will rise to the top. Place your bets now, and check back into this space for a regular update on the definitive word about the best books of the year.

    I really appreciate your efforts in compiling this list. I love being able to see what titles made many lists, those that rise to the top as you state. The true value of your compilation though, is the gathering of results from many sources, some I would never have seen and then finding gems I might have missed.

    How do you choose which Best Books choices to include? and do you compile on excel or another program?
