Books

I own many books.  This list contains the books completed or currently being read.

At the end I have provided an 'anti-list', which is a list of books that I have not finished, for one reason or another.  If I complete them eventually I will remove them from this section.


I'm considering including my notes from these books and my personal ratings, so if either or both of these things are of interest to you please let me know.
