Books I’m reading

(or have read, or want to read…)

As anyone who knows me knows, I read: constantly, voraciously, widely, and occasionally indiscriminately.  I read some books for personal enrichment, many for information, more for sheer pleasure, and most from an abject passion for good writing.  This will be an ongoing list, for my own reference and your perusal if you wish, of books I have read in recent months, am currently reading, or plan to read shortly.

At the moment they are in no particular order, but may become more ordered as time goes on and the list becomes longer.
