Reading List

The books I am or plan to be reading!

I try to keep this page fairly current; I last updated it on March 22, 2020. A few notes on the way this is organized and presented:

  • In the Completed” section and for previous years, entries appear in the order I finished the books.
  • Previous years only include books from years where I actually know what I read!
  • Books are marked (new)” if this was the first time I read them, or (reread)” otherwise.
  • I separate out fiction and non-fiction not because I value them differently, but because they just are very different.
  • Links on the books themselves are affiliate links to Alibris!
