If you are the proud owner of a shiny, new e-reading device and you are wondering where to start, take some tips from bestselling authors Dan Brown, Julia Glass, Carl Hiaasen, Nora Ephron, and Chuck Palahniuk. We asked these authors about their favorite books of 2010 and the books that top their must-read list for the New Year.

Top Picks from 2010
Carl Hiaasen, author of Star Island “The Tiger, by John Vaillant, is a terrific true story about the hunt for a man-eating tiger in Siberia. Vaillant is a first-rate journalist, and this book is as much about rural Russian culture and history as it is about the killer cat.” Nora Ephron, author of I Remember Nothing A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, a book about the interplay of time and music, about survival, about the stirrings and transformations set inexorably in motion by even the most passing conjunction of our fates.

Must-Read Books in 2011
Dan Brown, author of The Lost Symbol “Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson. The premise sounds chilling, and I’ll be curious to see how Steven Spielberg adapts it.” Chuck Palahniuk, author of Tell-All “Don Pollock’s debut novel, The Devil All The Time. No explanation needed.” Nora Ephron, author of I Remember Nothing “War and Peace. I’ve never read it.” Julia Glass, author of The Widower’s Tale “To the End of the Land, the new novel by David Grossman, is at the top of my list. It worries me how insulated most Americans are from the consciousness that our country is at war. I’m just as guilty as the next person here, yet I am beginning to feel drawn toward reading that keeps me mindful of what it means to be at war for those who are directly affected.” For more author recommendations, plus other great reading lists featuring the year’s bestsellers, award winners, reader favorites, and more, download The eBook Insider for free here.
