My Top 10 Books of the Oughts

I didn't want to do this list simply because it feels impossible to sum up the last ten years of my reading life, a period that covered college, graduate school, and a year of unemployment (in which I did A LOT of reading). However, since I've been tagged three times I guess I'm obligated. :)

The challenge: list 10 books that had the most impact on you that you've read in the last 10 years. They could have been written at any time, but you had to read them between 2000-2009.
