My Top 8 Disappointments as a Reader in 2009

  1. Declining quantity and quality of articles and coverage in newspapers and magazines.
  2. The ending to The Associate by John Grisham
  3. No John Rain series book by Barry Eisler
  4. No new James Bond series book by Sebastian Faulks
  5. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
  6. How books by Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck get to be bestsellers (ditto really for just about any politician or celebrity)
  7. Continued decline of Borders bookstores. Their business survival hangs in the balance. I like to see more not less brick and mortar bookstores
  8. Kindles. No I don't own one yet as I think the cost is still too high for the Kindle and the books, magazines and newspapers you can download
