Books Read in 2005 (An Incomplete List)

2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004

This is a repost of a list I made in 2005. The list is incomplete because the website I was maintaining at the time disappeared and I lost interest in tracking things. But here is what I had up to that point in June/July/August, and then some entries from November.

The preamble stays almost the same as last year’s list—I can read pretty fast, and I thought it might be interesting to track what I’ve been reading all year. ‘Cept this year, I think I’m going to throw magazines onto the list on top of the books. I’m curious as to what my long-form media diet really looks like.

Note on June 5: Sorry, I’m dropping this magazine thing. I read too many of them and I keep forgetting to keep track. So, books only from now on.

So here’s what I’ve been reading since the beginning of the year:
