and wash your hands afterwards." --Robert Heinlein.

To Read in 2016

Last year I did a reading challenge (similar to the one found here). I haven't decided if I'll do a similar challenge again this year but I did compile a list of all the books I'd like to try to tackle this year. Chances that I'll actually read them all are low, but it's something to aim for. (edited 11/21/16: x = read, / = started or currently reading) (edited 11/7/17: # = read in 2017)
