The tradition continues! Today’s post is my fifth annual “Best of” list. As has been the case in years past, this list includes some of the books, movies, TV shows, music and websites I’ve come to enjoy in 2010 along with some of my favorite memories. It’d be really fun if you left a few favorites of your own so that all of us can discover new books, music, movies, etc in 2011.
