The 2010 National Book Award finalists have been announced on the National Book Foundation website.
As usual, I'm embarrassed to reveal that I have not read a single book on this award list. I usually feel like an accomplished reader, and then I see a list like this, and think, "Huh. I really need to read more!" Perhaps one of these years, I'll sit down and try to read some the previous winners.

I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
