Some of the Books I Have ReadI used to have a web page devoted to the books I have read. I would write short reviews of the books and publish pictures of the covers. While I love reading, I've never been good at the discipline of writing book reports. As a result the page was perpetually behind my reading.
In place of that blog, I offer this list. It is alphabetized by author's last name. I will add books from time to time. It is not complete, but here are some of the books I have read in recent years.
