The Book List

I was inspired to create this list by Art Garfunkel’s comprehensive list of every book he’s read since 1968. It starts with the beginning of a list I kept on Goodreads in February 2009, and was continued here in December 2011.

Because of the company I work for, I read many books before they come out, so the dates I read books are sometimes before their publication.
