I’m always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven’t covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.

I am picking up a lot of lists from Largehearted Boy.

Earlier entries in this year’s list of lists can be found here and the 2009 summary post here.

    Largehearted Boy’s list of lists is fantastic.

    What was your favorite science book in 2010? Mine has to be THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS. I have read a number of good science books for kids, too, including several Scientists in the Field titles like PROJECT SEAHORSE and KAKAPO RESCUE. Both have plenty appeal for grown-up readers.
