The books I read in 2009.

  1. Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners by John Bunyan. Finished January 2009. ISBN-13: 978-1-59856-142-5
  2. Manhood by Steve Biddulph. Finished January 2009. ISBN 0-646-26144-4
  3. Beginning Fatherhood by Warwick Pudney and Judy Cottrell. Finished February 2009. ISBN 1-877178-00-4
  4. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. Finished March 2009.
  5. Before your kids drive you crazy, read this! by Nigel Latta. Finished March 2009. ISBN 1-86950-558-1
  6. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Finished April 2009. A very good book, easy to read and thought provoking. ISBN 978009944270
  7. Desert Dawn by Waris Dirie. Finished May 2009. I was very inspired by this book, it has caused me to think differently about what is really necessary to live a worthwhile life. ISBN 1-86049-853-1
  8. The Effective Father by Gordan MacDonald. Finished May 2009. Although written by a Christian author of reasonable reputation, this would be one of the more irritating books I have recently read. It consistently implies that unless you are doing as the author recommends, then you are failing as a father, yet the assumptions made in this book are very middle-class American and this is even more obvious 30 years after the date it was published. ISBN 0-8423-0680-3
