2009 Read List

I've been meaning to do this for years, and always forgot until maybe July or August. This year, I only forgot until February! Anyway, this post will be constantly updated as a compendium of books I've read so far this year. I'm a moderately slow reader, and really only have time to do so during my commutes each day, so it may be a while between updates.

Now for the list:

how am I supposed to recommend books, unless I know every book you've ever read, plus what you are in the mood for?
But, uuhhh... the unbearable lightness of being must be read by all. You'd also probably like snowcrash. And catch-22.

I almost had a blog just like this! I failed at updating though.... I still have the list of books, so perhaps one day I'l do it. As for books to read... That's a tough one. I just read Coraline, it was sufficiently frightening. I loved My Life as a Fake by Peter Carey. Last year my favorites were Water for Elephants and Time Traveler's Wife.. =) enjoy! Kepp reminding us to read this, I love knowing what people are reading.

I love Junot Diaz's work. Drown and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao were both amazing, but chock full o' spanglish, so if you don't feel like trying to translate, then it may not be for you. I think he's a genius!

I'm still working up the nerve and patience to read Only Revolutions. It's going to take up so much of my time, dude.

I'm an almost librarian and I don't have any recommendations for you. I fail.

How about triple crown publication books, like
hood rat, or Bitch Reloaded part 2...or any zane book.

Sounds like something you would like.
