95 Books I'm Looking forward to in 2010

We're already in the "new" year, of course, and the first of these titles have recently been published.

Yes, I realize I won't be able to read all these books in 2010. What's your point? :-)

I put this together in December of '09 so half of it is probably wrong by now. All corrections/updates welcome. (I am aware that for some of these the date represents the first paperback publication, not the first publication of the book per se.)
