Books of 2009

Must Read: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Skip: Julie & Julia 

Interesting Read: Tipping Points

Skip: Notes from a Small Island

Entertaining Read and Thought-Provoking: The Reader and Boy in Striped Pyjamas

Fascinating: How We Survived Communism and Even Laughed

New Favorite Author of 2009: Helmut Thielicke (new to me)

Still Reading and Likely Worth Finishing: Audacity of Hope

Not everything I read in 2009 is title-worthy. Some were ho-hum. Some were fascinating but not life-changing. Other books I enjoyed but am not convinced everyone out there would enjoy them equally.

So what did you read in 2009? Anything worth recommending? Anything you're looking forward to reading in 2010?

Love it when you post books! I actually ask for one that you recommended for Christmas... The Travel Book. Now, I will have to check these out as well! Thanks! Sorry, I don't have any to return the favor. Most of the ones I am into right now involve Biblical Discipline (for a 2 year old) and potty training! Not the most enjoyable reads but necessary!
