We're still counting the top books of 2010—we'll be unveiling the Top 10 list in the December 7 edition of BookPageXTRA. This portion of the list contains two of my personal favorites for the year, Lionel Shriver's So Much for That and Paul Murray's Skippy Dies. Though they're two very different novels, they're both still fresh in my mind months after turning the final pages. What are your favorite books of 2010?
