Here is my 2010 Reading List. There are five | READ THIS | books and a few more very good books. I’ve included brief notes and an Amazon link for each book. My default format is audiobook. I’ve noted “book” in the few cases where I read in hardcopy.
Fiction – “Entertainment”
- Daemon – Daniel Suarez | READ THIS | Techno Guy Book Nirvana- “dwong” recommended to me & I’m seconding … Awesome!
- Freedom – Daniel Suarez | READ THIS too 🙂
