Best Books of 2010: Counting Down Amazon's Top 100

There won't be any Long Distance Dedications, but in case you haven't noticed already this morning, we're counting down our editors' picks for the Top 100 Books of 2010 on Twitter @omnivoracious. We'll count down from #100 to #11 today, with a tweet every five minutes, and then we'll announce our top 10 tomorrow, at the same time that we open our complete Best Books of 2010 page, which will also have Top 10 picks and customer bestsellers in nearly two dozen categories.

Here's how the countdown has gone so far:

100. The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements by Sam Kean

99. Bloody Crimes: The Chase for Jefferson Davis and the Death Pageant for Lincoln's Corpse by James L. Swanson (you might think we were counting down the longest subtitles of the year...)

98. Decoded by Jay-Z

97. Twain's Feast: Searching for America's Lost Foods in the Footsteps of Samuel Clemens by Andrew Beahrs

96. The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food and Love by Kristin Kimball
