2009 Reading List

A little over a year ago, I started using the "Reading List by Amazon" application inside LinkedIn to track the books I read. I may have forgotten to add a book or two, but here is the list of books I read and logged last year:

  • Magnificent Failure: Free Fall from the Edge of Space by Craig Ryan
  • Anathem by Neal Stephenson
  • The Bancroft Strategy by Robert Ludlum
  • Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates by David Cordingly
  • Fool: A Novel by Christopher Moore
  • The Diamond Age: Or, a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson
  • The Pixar Touch by David A. Price
  • The Merchants' War: Book Four of the Merchant Princes by Charles Stross
  • The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero by William Kalush, Larry Sloman
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
  • The Parachute And Its Pilot: The Ultimate Guide For The Ram-Air Aviator by Brian Germain
  • Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
  • Wireless by Charles Stross
  • The Cobweb by Neal Stephenson, J. Frederick George
  • The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
  • The Passionate Programmer: Creating a Remarkable Career in Software Development by Chad Fowler
  • Deja Dead: 10th Anniversary Edition (Temperance Brennan Novels) by Kathy Reichs

I have already finished one book this year, with two other started, a stack of 12 waiting to be read, and a few Borders gift cards waiting to be spent. This should be a good year for reading :-)
