|The Naming of the Books

For some reason I no longer remember, maybe boredom, sometime in the early '00s I started keeping a running Excel spreadsheet of every book read during the calendar year and then posting the list here on my LJ at year's end.
You can find 2009's list after the cut, presented in the order in which I read them. As always the list includes books and graphic novel trade collections, but doesn't include any short stories, magazine issues or individual comics issues I read during the year. Looking back on it, I see 2009 was a sucky year for my love of reading. I only put away 10 books--well below my average, and possibly a personal worst for my adult life--but in my defense, writing three books in one year doesn't leave you with a lot of spare reading time. Still, I hope to make more reading time in 2010.
