Announcing the People's Gummies & Mans' Best Books he's read in 2010


Do you like best of lists? Liar! Everyone likes best of lists. Let me tell you about... fine fine I'll hurry it up. OK, so much like the People's Choice is the people's equivalent to the Oscars, The People's Gummies will be the Nick Kid's Choice to the Gummies. We are asking you, yes YOU, the monsters to vote on your 5 favorite movies, albums & books you've read in 2010* You don't have to list all 5 in all 3 categories for your vote to be counted, but why not? Really?

How it works: Post your lists right here in the comments & we'll add them up and announce the winners at a latter date. Number them 1-5, a six entry will not be counted. Awesome right? Well get voting, you don't want this list comprised solely of my choices.

*The five movies & albums have to be from 2010, the books need only to be read by you in 2010 to qualify. Not sure how this would work?
ADDENDUM: VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE SONG AND FAVORITE VIRAL VIDEO AS WELL
Voting ends on Dec. 26.

Still hungry for lists? check out Mans's list of the 10 best books he's read in 2010:


1. "The Five Books of Moses" translated by Robert Alter
2. "Mr. Fortune's Maggot" by Sylvia Townsend Warner
3. "The Collected Stories" by Lydia Davis
4. "Monsieur Pain" by Roberto Bolaño **
5. "The Story of My Life" by Helen Keller
6. "The Procedure" by Harry Mulisch
7. "The Confessions of Felix Krull" by Thomas Mann
8. "Despair" by Vladimir Nabokov
9. "The Mezzanine" by Nicholson Baker
10. [Held for great book that I read that I am undoubtedly forgetting]



**By the way "Monsieur Pain" was my wrestling name in Mexican AAA wrestling.
