I am not a year-end list type of guy but I am going to put three out here this week. I have broken my lists up into three categories: novels, digital short stories, and self-published work. The plan is to put them up in that order Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The time frame involved for inclusion in this is the entire year, not just a quarter as I have done throughout the year. Placement of some of the novels may surprise you and/or irritate you (sorry), but I am more than happy to debate my placement choices with you. Let’s have at it shall we? Here are my top 35 novel choices for 2010 which I could have easily made 100, maybe next year. Wait, why 35? To keep it simple, we have been posting since mid- March so I wanted to divide 50 by 4 and multiply it by 3. 35 seemed like a nice number. 38 or 39 didn’t cut it for me.   Feel free to download all of them to your new ereader. Oh yeah, some authors have two titles next to their name; I loved them both.
