A Short History of Books

Way back in the day I kept track of the books I read. It was a dark time in my life, the three months between my college graduation and my first big-person job, and I was reading voraciously. Now that I’m nearly done with my Masters and will once again have some free time for reading, I thought it would be a good time to keep track. Therefore, below is my reading history since the inception of Cindspectus.

Books with links lead to my relevant posts about them.
