I don't think it's too soon for this ...

{edit} Take the poll HERE!

I may have missed doing this last year ... perhaps I need to get caught up on that. Anyway, I just finished one book today and started on a fairly substantial one that I'm pretty sure I'm not going to finish in the next four days, so, behind the cut (ain't I a swell guy), is my "BOOKS READ IN 2009 LIST" ...

I only just topped my target of 72 books read this year (with 74), but at least I made that. With most of this year spent home cranking out resumes, I've had less time for reading than I did when I was commuting up to Evanston for work. If I get this gig that I interviewed for a week or so back, I'll be taking the Metra out to the west 'burbs so my reading total will no doubt go back up to where it had been the past couple of years! As always, more details are over at my LibraryThing catalog.
