2009 reading list (so far)

I got an email the other day from a friend asking me what books I've read this year, and can I recommend anything good? Well, yeah, I can! I've also read some doozies.

Gee, now that I've listed them all, 2009 has been a really light reading year (in fiction, anyway).  Usually I read a novel a week.  Tsk, tsk.  I'll have to prioritize my time better next year.

Wow.  I've really been on a thriller kick for the past few months.  Probably since I bought so many books at ThrillerFest last July.

Here's my vow for 2010:  One book a week.  And I need to read more widely.

Have you read anything good this year?
