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***

Fantastic addition to a series I love.


Emergency: This Book Will Save Your Life***

Awesome read. Love Neil Strauss.


The Ruins

Couldn't put it down.


Tomorrow's Professor: Preparing for Careers in Science and Engineering

Decent book.


Robot: Mere Machine to Transcendent Mind

A bit dated, but full of good ideas.
