Books Read in 2009


I am a voracious reader of both fiction and nonfiction. I don’t just read books for these reviews. I’m the kind of person who feels naked without a book handy. Below is the list of books I read last year. These books run across a pretty wide gap of genres and authors from science fiction to business. I actually amazed myself how many books I read.

Even so, I still didn’t meet my goal. I’d hoped to read 60 books in 2009, and I was only shy by eight books. I’m going to try to meet that goal again this year.

I hope this list inspires you to read more and make a list of your own. Feel free to send me your own lists. If any of these books sound interesting, you can check them out at Amazon and read helpful reviews from other readers.
