Best Books of 2010: A Free Literary Sampler

Looking for some new books with your eReader or gift certificates?  We won’t be posting during the long holiday weekend, but we’ve got your search covered with a full set of literary mixtapes.

This GalleyCat editor makes an annual mixtape collecting his favorite songs from the year–allowing his friends and family to sample great music. We love reading “Best Books of …” lists, but we built a set of literary mixtapes focused exclusively on sample chapters of books suggested by GalleyCat readers.

Follow these links to see readers recommendations and read sample chapters from every book–our literary mixtape collection: Best Novels of 2010, the Best YA Books of 2010, the Best eBooks of 2010, and the Best Nonfiction of 2010. If you are looking for larger gifts, eBookNewser has a holiday gift guide for eReaders.
