Pigs' 2009 Reads

It's remarkable how much having kids affects my ability to read. Well, not my actual ability...more my time. There's just too many other things to do.

I enjoyed finishing the Twilight series, that was good times. I think my favorites were Firefly Lane and The Fixer Upper for light reading. The Shack was the most interesting. 1, 2, 3 Magic was the most useful. Ironically, I think I left it off this list, which shows you the kind of reading I did this year. Nineteen Minutes was really good, scary and a fast read.

Once again, I hope to read more in the coming year. I used to unfailingly read 50-60 books a year and now? Alas. Children. I thought it was to be blamed on TV, but here we are at the end of the year and I have an entire season of Grey's Anatomy, Glee, and Cougar Town just sitting on my DVR. Who knew?
