Every year I do a listing of the books I read in the past year. Here is this year's list. I haven't bothered to distinguish between books I actually read, and books that I listened to as audiobooks (I have a long commute to work.) In some cases, I was actually re-reading a book. I've linked to blog posts and interviews I did with the authors.
