John's Lifetime Reading List

"It's not how many books you get through that matters, as how many get through you." -- Michael Dirda

Go to: Chronological list | Alpha list | Statistics | In the Garden in 2006 | A-Z in 2005
100 books in 2004 | 100x100 | Reading themes

This is a reverse chronological list of all of the books I have read since 1992, with books prior to that listed alphabetically by author. I love recommendations, but if you'd like to suggest a book, you might first look at my list sorted by authors in case I've already read it. Books for Soldiers

[ 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001 | 2000 | 1999 | 1998 | 1997 | 1996 | 1995 | 1994 | 1993 | 1992 | pre-1992 ]
