Super Bowl Sunday - Book of the Year 2009 announced.

Well, it was a light year - no blockbuster reading I'll admit.  This became a race of B class books.  A Separate Peace, yes that book from high school came out strong in the final tally, but fell short.  Stephen King's The Long Walk also impressed, but couldn't seal the deal.

Here are the results of the 2009 Book Of The Year Award.

Runner Up:  The Ice Man - Hitman for hire, the Polock, incredible tales, even if him videotaping people getting eaten by rats is not your thing.  A great read, a good book.

Champion:  The Hitman - Bret Hart - For all the faults this book has, it still is valuable in that Hart has incredible stories to tell about what happened behind the scenes, the rise of wrestling, Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant, and much more.  I still refer back to it to see some of his thoughts.  Good enough to take the title, and I recommend it.  But please, throw away the dust jacket because it is such a gay picture.

Incredible irony as you can tell this year.

So far Genghis Khan is setting a torride pace for 2010, which promises to be a killer year for lit, expecially if Medusa Coelenterate gets published.
