Summer Reading List 2009

So, a little while ago, I decided to make a list of all of the books that I want to read this summer during all of my free time.
I started the list, and before I was even CLOSE to done, I realized that there was NO POSSIBLE WAY that I would ever get around to reading all of these books this summer. There are just too frickin' many. :-( ::sadness:: In any case, I figured I would stop there as opposed to continuing on and just making the list even more impossible to finish. This is what I came up with (and thus what you potentially have to look forward to in this blog's future):

(N.B. I'm going to keep coming back and striking out the books that I finish)
