Best of 2010 As Books editors at Amazon, we read all year with this page in mind. We're always asking ourselves, "Is this a keeper? Is this one worth telling people about?" And here is our chance to collect those books that made us say, "Yes." These are the books we've been telling each other about all year, and the ones that we've watched our customers spread the word about too, starting with our choice for the book of the year, Rebecca Skloot's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks , a brilliantly and compassionately told story of a woman lost to history and the family that sustained her memory while her cells became a foundation of modern science.

The Compulsive Reader :: A Haven for Book Lovers Interestingly, considering its title, this book contains more information than juicing information, although juicing is its primary focus.

If one reads enough health books, one discovers that healthbooks and diet books often tread the same paths. Thus, this book has chapters dealing with such issues as parasites, GMO-foods, massages, toxic emotions, vitamins, and heavy metals.

So I illustrated Gravity's Rainbow-- nobody asked me to, but I did it anyway. Most of the pictures are drawings-- ink on whatever paper was lying around, but there are also paintings (acrylic), photos I took, and experimental photographic processes. I tried to illustrate the passages as literally as possible-- if the book says there was a green Spitfire, I drew a green Spitfire. Mostly, I tried to make a series of pictures as dense, intricate, and rich as the prose in the book. The entire project was shown in the Whitney Museum's 2004 Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Art and is now in the permanent collection of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Title Page
