2009 Books

2009 December 31
by Julie Clawson

So each year I like to survey the past year by posting the list of books I read that year. Looking at this list, which is probably the shortest list I’ve ever posted for a year, I wish I had read far more than I did. I guess life, publishing my own book, and (admittedly) watching the entire Battlestar Galactica series got in the way of reading. But even so, it’s a decent list with books that taught me, challenged me, entertained me, and angered me which makes them worthwhile in my opinion.

2009 Books –



While there are a few books on this list that I would classify in the almost to painful to read category, for the most part I enjoyed this years books. For sheer entertainment in a satirical intellectual sort of way, I would list Cuisines of the Axis of Evil as a favorite. As for books that I’ve recommended the most and mentally returned to most often I would list Mama’s Got a Fake ID and Manifold Witness. I seriously hope to expand my reading this next year – especially by reading non-majority (not white, western, or male) theological works (any recommendations would be appreciated).

So what about you – what were your favorite reads of 2009?

    I thought Everyday Justice was one of the best books this year…

    Watching the entire run of Battlestar Galactica ate into my reading time this past year as well. :-) I read Haydon’s Rhapsody series of books a few years ago and it remains to be one of my favorite fantasy series.
