It is now assumed that people are no more inclined towards reading books but according to Seattle Times, better books have been published and read by a large number of readers in the year 2010.
The reviews given against twenty seven books by the contributors of Seattle times have brought optimism and hope to those who were disappointed at the approaching death of book reading habit. Stats have shown that this year the best fifteen books fall in the non fiction category and the remaining twelve are purely based on fiction. The books that top the list include the following titles:
- "Freedom" by Jonathan Franzen
