Books I read in 2009


Last January I decided to keep a list of books I read in 2009. My purpose was to see how many books I really do read in a year. I was surprised to discover that its not nearly as many as I had thought (only 59?!). I didn't rate the books and the only order they're in is the order in which I read them.
