The Reading List

Over the years, I’ve read a lot of books.

My only regret is that I never kept a list of what I’ve actually read. As I work my way through the knowledge of the world, this list will only keep getting longer (also as I remember the books I have read this year).

FYI, a * means it’s a re-read.

Want to share a book with me? Let me know!
