Reading List

April 28, 2004

Via Sheila O'Malley, we have a long list of books read.

I forget if I have done this one already or not, so here we go again.

Below the fold is a list of books and authors.

The way the meme is supposed to work is that you mark the items you have read in bold. I added to that - for many of these I have read other works by the author. There I marked the author in bold and left the title in plain text. I also put an asterisk in front of the books that I started and then put down. I have read the first 300 pages of War and Peace at least three times now.

My current books on tape are Steinbeck Grapes of Wrath and Heinlein Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Once I finish those I might dig into this list for suggested things to listen to.
