What I’ve Read

I figured this would be a great place for me to keep track of all the books I’ve read in the last few years; I tend to forget if I’ve read a particular book, or if I had owned it at any time. This list goes as far as 2012, when I first began to keep track of my daily activities and reading progress. These are listed in the order I read them, but I may sort them alphabetically at some point.
