Some Good Books I Read in 2009

Some were re-reads, but so what? :)

Babylon Babies

Definitely not for everyone, but I had fun with it.

Indian Killer

Dark and fascinating.

Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian

One of my new all-time favorites - wonderful!

A Return to Modesty

Flawed, but interesting.

Turbulent Souls

Lovely, inspiring.

The Hunger Games & Catching Fire

Waaaaaaaay better than the Twilight books, you hear me, kids?

Cosmology of Islam

Deep stuff!

Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn Mysteries

Fantastic set of mysteries set in Navajo country.

The Lynley Mysteries

A little overboard with the Britishness, but wonderful characters.

The Lord of the Rings

I don't think I even have to say anything, except to keep reading past the history of Hobbit Pipe Weed and things pick up quickly.

Sherlock Holmes

Nothing like the movie, of course. Jeremy Brett already did it perfectly.

Super Freakonomics

Nowhere near as good as the first, but still relatively entertaining and very fast.

American Indians of the Pikes Peak Region

Great images and good information. Could've used even more information, and more detailed captions in some cases.
