In just a couple of hours, 2009 will be over. For the first time, I kept a list of all the books that I read this past year. I'm disappointed in that I read only 65 books this past year (I got distracted with a Lost rewatch. I also started Battlestar Galactica this year and have been consumed with watching that series). In looking over the books I read the past year, I see books by old favorites such as Michael Connelly and Janet Evanovich (what is a year without Harry Bosch and Stephanie Plum). I started dabbling in graphic novels which I am enjoying. Plus, I had my yearly reread of the Harry Potter series (this year I listened to every book and that was a huge undertaking). I didn't start this blog until a couple of months ago, so there were some fantastic books that I read but haven't mentioned before that I'd like to say just a few words about.
