What I’ve Read

This is a running list of what I read each year, it’s not good or bad, it’s just a list. You may read more than me, you may read less, it’s not a competition. I read mostly for pleasure and while I’m interested to hear what you’re reading and interested to hear your opinion about books we’ve both read, I’m not at all interested in whether you approve of the books I’ve read or enjoy.
