Books Read 2009

Rating Scale: (sometimes with a few decimals thrown in for difficulty)
1: Awful, I don’t know why I finished this piece of trash
2: Bearable, but not enjoyable; some promising points, but I still didn’t like it.
3: Fair, I liked it well enough, not bad, mild, in the middle of the spectrum, enjoyable enough way to spend and afternoon. Most books fall here.
4: Pretty great, above 3 (obviously), but not quite an awesome 5; very enjoyable, recommendable.
5: Nearly perfect, but not quite the perfect, amzingness of 5.5. Many of my favorite books fall into this category or a 4.
