Book Club 2009

Last year i resolved to start reading the books that i probably should have years ago but, for one reason or another, didn't.

2009’s Book List (in no particular order):
  1. Asimov, Isaac; Foundation and Empire
  2. Austen, Jane; Pride and Prejudice
  3. Gibson, William; Mona Lisa Overdrive
  4. Lee, Harper; To Kill A Mockingbird
  5. Melville, Herman; Moby Dick*
  6. Clarke, Arthur C.; 2001: A Space Odyssey
Moby Dick i must admit i only made through halfway. Tough read. Yeah, i’m a pinhead. And Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead is still waiting.

Why only five and a half books in a year? I usually read in bed and, well, on a good night i make it through five to ten pages before sleep takes over.

But, already devoured in 2010 was Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. Next up, Massimo Carlotto’s latest (i love Carlotto): L’amore del bandito.

Edit (2010.02.07): I just remembered i'd also read Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five. So that’s a whole six-and-a-half books for 2009! Nyaaahh!
