Books I Read in 2009.

The other day I posted a list of books I read in 2010 and several people have emailed me asking me to post the list for 2009 (the year in which I started keeping track) so here you have it.

Someone in the comments asked for a synopsis or review of each book which I’m not going to go back to do but if you have any questions or want to start a discussion then feel free to leave a comment.

Going back through the dates, I see that I didn’t want to go near a book in February… And I went through a Raymond Chandler kick in the summer. I had just bought my iPhone in late August which is why I started reading stories on my Stanza in September. I can’t seem to read anything longer than a novella on it.

  1. I read Great Gatsby & The Kindly Ones, that year—otherwise it was mostly Slavoi Zizek’s ouevre. I keep meaning buy a set of those Jack Aubrey adventures; are they any good?
