I blame you for the late start this year, grad school.

I don't think I've actually read a full book yet in 2010, despite the copious bits of reading I had to do during the winter semester. Now that school is out for four months, I've dusted off books at home and also checked some out from the library. While I do need to read a few books for my impending thesis and my semiotic anthropology course in the fall, there will also be lots of pure junk reading, too. Here is the re-established tradition of listing everything I read:

James Twitchell Living it Up: Our Love Affair with Luxury (begun May 6, finished May 16)
Mark Monmonier Coast Lines: How Mapmakers Frame the World and Chart Environmental Change (begun May 16, finished June 28)
J.D. Salinger Franny and Zooey (begun May 22, finished May 26)
Lendol Calder Financing the American Dream: A Cultural History of Consumer Credit (begun June 29, finished July 24)
Mary Douglas and Baron Isherwood The World of Goods: Toward an Anthropology of Consumption (begun July 25, finished September 8)
Ronald Wright A Short History of Progress (begun September 7, finished October 13)
Cretien van Campen The Hidden Sense: Synesthesia in Art and Science (begun September 8)
Jennifer Robertson Takarazuka: Sexual Politics and Popular Culture in Modern Japan (begun September 12, finished September 20)
Bruce Lenthall Radio's America: The Great Depression and the Rise of Modern Mass Culture (begun September 25, finished September 27)
Christopher Leinberger The Option of Urbanism: Investing in a New American Dream (begun October 13)
Richard Florida The Great Reset: How New Ways of Living and Working Drive Post-Crash Prosperity (begun October 14)
