Books in 2009
It's beginning to bother me that I neither kept track of the books I read in 2009 nor finished a lot of them. (Unfinished, for example, in spite of the time I have invested in them so far and the fact that I plan to finish them: The Girl Who Played With Fire, Guns, Germs, and Steel, and Inherent Vice. Also Godel, Escher, Bach and a bunch of others.)

Here are some of the books I know I finished. I will edit this list as I remember more....

The Art of Being Kind by Stefan Einhorn
Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik (I'm in the middle of it)
The Black Moth by Georgette Heyer
Real World by Natsuo Kirino
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson (actually read half of it in 2008)
Foreign Tongue by Vanina Marsot
How to Win at College by Cal Newport
The Dragon Scroll by I. J. Parker
Rashomon Gate by I. J. Parker
Black Arrow by I. J. Parker
Andromeda Klein by Frank Portman (this might be my book of the year!)
Machiavelli in 90 Minutes by Paul Strathern (a brief bio; writing research)
The Tattoo Murder Case by Akimitsu Takagi

Also the usual pile of craft and reference books that I don't really track in the long term, and things like Mail Me Art and I Love Your Style.

I'm definitely going to try to read at least 1 book per week in 2010. It's bothering me that I haven't managed so much. And my 2010 journal will have a page or three just for tracking the titles of things I've read.
