Amazon’s Top 10 Books Of The Year Feature Only Kindle Titles

Amazon.com announced its picks for Best Books of 2010 today, which includes a number of different Top 100 books and Top 10 lists. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, was No. 1 on Amazon’s Top 10 editors’ picks for the year favorite.
