2014 Reading List

I recently wrote about my reading goals for 2014. That was more of a general statement of intentions. This is the actual reading list necessary to make those goals happen. I’ll update this page throughout the year, crossing off the books I’ve already read.

My reading list has 48 books and will (at current prices) cost me $320. This doesn’t account for an flotsam and jetsam reading that I do or anything that I read for purposes of Worldcon nominating or voting.
