Books read in 2009
…and the books I read in the past year, not counting the many read to Beth! I got through sixty books this year, which is a good increase on last year. I still spend too much time in front of a screen when I could be reading.

As usual, a good bit of detective fiction. I made an effort to read more non-fiction, but with non-fiction I find I don’t have the enthusiasm to keep reading, and a book will last me weeks. Fiction, on the other hand, I read with avidity.

Sorry, I have an ideological objection to using lj-cuts, particularly on a text-only post.

Well, yeah, but 2 long text only posts takes 2/3 of a whole friends screen...
