Books Read in 2008

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

So again, I can read quite quickly and I tend to read a lot. Thus, since 2004 I’ve made a small effort to track what I’ve been reading, to get a sense of scale of the whole enterprise. This list will cover only the books I’ve read, and it will be in reverse chronological order. Let’s go!
