Best Books of 2009



 I am going to share this here as well as on my book blog, Reading in White Bear Lake.  It has been a very slow year of reading for me.   Life and work have gotten in the way of my sitting around and reading into the wee hours of the night.  Since I am no longer going to Duluth for work each month, my nights to read in the hotel room are gone as well.  Alas, I have only read 28 books in 2009, but some very good ones!!

Happy Reading!!!
