Bookish meme

Iliana posted this: "Dorothy W. just posted this wonderful meme and I couldn't pass up on it. Check it out and I bet you’ll want to give it a go too.
Using only books you have read this year (2009), answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It’s a lot harder than you think!"
Her answers were wonderful. I decide to join in bu couldn't just include the 2009 books because they were not that numerous and did not fit as answers to those questions, so I included the 2008 as well. I hope you do it too.
