I've been on a bit of a reading binge this year.  I will talk about that more in a future post.

Below is a list of the fiction I have read during 2009 up thru today (70 books!).  I read mostly Speculative / Science Fiction.  In the future I hope to publish my reading list with sortable columns by title, author, rating, or whatever information might be useful.
