Extraordinary Canadians Lucy Maud Montgomery by Jane Urquhart 2009. Thoughtful book - well written. Interesting discussion of women writers, how they were dismissed as not real writers. Makes you want to go back and read all the books again.
Midnight Fugue by Reginald Hill, 2009. First books I've read by him, the TV series is certainly true to the books. It was good.
Listening to Dog On It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery in the car, by Spencer Quinn 2009 although that is a pseudonym. Very funny mystery, the dog is the narrator and he is a pretty goofy dog.
Started Beijing Coma by Ma Jian, 2009. Serious book. Well written, but may be too bleak to finish.
