2009: The Year in Books

I kept a better and more accurate record of my readings this year than I have in the past. I am pleased to see there are a few more books on the list than there were last year when I was in grad school for the entire year. Once again I have included re-reads (rr) and listed the books in the order they were read. So without further ado, I give you my reading list for 2009:

If I post mine, there will be some missing, because I had a short list of maybe 4 on my desk at home that I hadn't added yet.
