What I did in 2009, well, reading-wise

Figured I’d post a year-end post of everything I did or didn’t do in 2009. But first, a bad joke:

Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar.
One says, “I’ve lost my electron.”
“Are you sure?”
The first replies, “Yes, I’m positive…”

The year was mostly taken up by family stuff, job, health, etc. In other words, nothing exciting…

Well, I actually did get something accomplished. Read some books! And this year, it was more fiction than non-fiction, although the stack of non-fiction awaits.

Oh look, a stack of books still to read…

Ah, I have the top four! My latest project is to read through the Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child 'Pendergast' series, and their other assorted books if they look of interest. Bought one (yikes, paperbacks are DAMN pricey but I was there, it was there, and impulse purchase) and now have "Terminal Freeze" but at least I don't have to return it to the library.

And here's PART of the shelf of various books....

And I guess I should chatter about TV in 2009.  Hmm, next post! Oh look, there's my Bailey's chocolates! Must not eat ... just yet...
