2009 Reading List

2009 was not a good year for me, reading-wise. At a certain point, I feel like I kinda gave up on reading books. I'm pretty sure it was my lowest "book book" reading year in quite a while. It just felt like I rarely sat down and read for pleasure. These are not in order, and show the tail end of my poetry reading phase and a lot of history books, relatively speaking.
