Read and Listened to: January - June 2009

This version of my sidebar clean-up is different than in the past. With my new job and commute, I am listening to a large number of books on CD. Two notes:
  1. These are listed in reverse chronological order (since that is how I move them around on the sidebar.
  2. I am leaving the list on the sidebar for another week or two (to remind me of the formatting!).
