I started keeping a list of books I read in 1977. These pages show the books I read thru 2008. From 1-1-09 I have tracked my reading on LT. The first books listed in 1977 were Humbolt‘s Gift, What I‘m Going To Do I Think, Tristram Shandy, The Confessions of Nat Turner, Japanese Stories, Pickwick Papers, Auto-de-Fe, Riders in the Chariot, The Painted Bird, African Stories, & Middlemarch. I think I read more seriously then.
