Best Books of 2009

It's really hard to narrow down to just 10 or 20 best books for any given year, because I don't exclusively read books published in that year and I read in a lot of different genres, but here's an attempt, not at the best books of 2009, but the best books I read in 2009. These are in no particular order:

1. Susan Scott, Fierce Conversations
2. China MiƩville, The City and the City (as an audiobook)
3. The Last Theorem, Arthur C. Clarke (as an audiobook)

5. Driftless, David Rhodes
6. The Life of Messiaen, Christopher Dingle
7. Breathing Space: A Spiritual Journey in the South Bronx, Heidi Neumark
