And then a few of the books I read for work:

Mastering the SAT Neil Chyten
Mastering the ACT Neil Chyten
Math Supplement Neil Chyten
Critical Reading Supplement Neil Chyten
Writing Supplement Neil Chyten



I'd say the best book of the lot was The Artist and the Mathematician which was a fun non-fiction book about the man who changed the way we study math and who never existed. Seriously.

Oh the fiction, I'd say The Hunger Games Trilogy was the best although I loved Possession, Wide Sargasso Sea, and Timeline.

The worst book of the lot was The Alchemist. I like my religious allegory a little more allegorical. This was just way too preachy and anvily.

So that's what I did with a bunch of my time in 2010.
