Reading list

This is a list of books I have read, since… Well, since a couple of months ago when I began to keep track of books that I am reading. I might write something about what I am reading, if I can think of anything in particular to say. If I do that I will make this list even better by including links to something I’ve said about each of the books. But I’m getting ahead of myself there with grand plans of reviews and links.
