2015-2016

On his website, Art Garfunkel has chronicled every book he has read since 1968. I think I saw this list somewhere during 2015, around the time a couple friends were encouraging me to get on GoodReads. And so 2015 was the year my reading habits went public… probably to much lower fanfare than those of Art Garfunkel. But why should that slow me down? Bold titles indicate my favorites in each section. Links indicate that I’ve written something about the book here on the website. Finally, just because I’ve read it doesn’t mean I endorse it… or even necessarily liked it. Sometimes I read what others give me or what, of necessity, must be read. Feel free to roam around!
