2009 Wrap-up

Well, I accidentally deleted the half-finished spreadsheet I had started so I could post all my 2009 books by category and by star rating. Oops. I think it's a sign to stop spending time on a wrap-up and get to the 2010 reading! So I thought I'd just post a quick summary and a few highlights from 2009 so that I feel I've wrapped up last year.

I read a total of 116 books. For 2008, it was 217, so there was no way I was ever going to top that. I did a fair amount of re-reading, but managed more literary novels than I had in 2008. I'm just going to list a few of special note.
