This is late but we all need to deal with disappointment in our lives.
Memorable events for 2009:
- Heading to Chicago
- Thanksgiving weekend freezing at the lake
- Freezing at the cabin in late April with snow on the ground
Favorite books I read in 2009:
- The BLDGBlog Book
- The War by Ken Burns
- The Kennedys by Peter Collier & David Horowitz :: Quite good as it followed the family after RFK’s assassination and the tragedy that kept following even the next generation of Kennedys.
- Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller: Oil and the End of Globalization by Jeff Rubin :: By far my most depressing read of the summer. He gave a more comprehensive explanation of the complexity of peak oil, the economy, and what the future is going to look like.
- The Invention of Air by Steven Johnson :: I reviewed it here.
- Liar’s Poker by Michael Lewis :: I haven’t laughed so hard reading a book like this in a long time.
- Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell :: Raw I.Q. and talent isn’t enough.
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau :: Despite written in a writing style 150 years old, it was a great summer read and a perfect to be reading at the cabin.
