On My Bookshelf

These books are currently sitting on my bookshelf or Kindle waiting to be read. Many I’ve purchased in chunks (Boston Book Festival, Harvard Bookstore Warehouse Sale, Goodwill, etc.) and others are on my Kindle as they are pre-1923 versions. There are even a few I’ve lugged up from NC from childhood/high school to re-read. I hope that one day this’ll be a zero list, but let’s face it the list will probably increase much faster than it decreases!
