It’s become a tradition to recap my year’s bests. As usual, this list is not necessarily books or music that debuted in 2009, bur rather things I enjoyed in 2009 for the first time. Each year I add or delete certain sections. This year I deleted the “Best Moments” category only because I’ve already mentioned most of our best moments in other places on this blog. Please add some of your favorites from any category in my comment section OR create your own post and leave me a link!
