Reading

Books I’ve read, going from newest to oldest, starting in October 2000. Total so far: 986 books. (I really like reading.)

I don’t write reviews very often, but when I do, they’re tagged with #books on my blog. If there are multiple authors on a book, I usually only list the first author.

I have a note on content in case you’re wondering about that.
