2009 book wrap up

Every year I report on the books I've finished in the previous year.
You can see all of the books I've read since 1993 at

Here is 2009, in which I read 11 books. Lower than usual. I have been reading more periodicals and doing other, hopefully more productive things.

Little Brother
by Cory Doctorow

Good book. Read it free on my phone.

The Gathering Storm***
by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

Fantastic addition to a series I love.

Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life***
by Neill Strauss

Awesome read. Love Neil Strauss.

The Ruins
by Scott Smith

Couldn't put it down.

Tomorrow's Professor: Preparing for Careers in Science and Engineering
by Richard M. Reis

Decent book.

Robot: Mere Machine to Transcendent Mind
by Hans Moravec

A bit dated, but full of good ideas.

The Mechanical Mind in History
, edited by Husbands, Holland, & Wheeler

by Ian Fleming

Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton

The Fourth Ambit

Best book on meditation I've ever read.
