  1. Thank you so much for these wonderful lists and your reviews.
    I think I read more of the books you read in 2008 than in 2009.
    Good to have a reference.

  2. Plus the only book we both read in 2009 was The Laws of Harmony…I find that amazing because when we chat and email we seem to have many things in common…

    1. A lot of the books I read in 2009 were ARCs, driven by review deadlines. That may account for the lack of common books. This year was more about what I like, and wanted to read.
