Reading List [2013]

Read: Books that I have read so far, in 2013, in order of completion. Any book preceded by a red number is one that has been re-read, that is: I have already read those books at least once before the start of 2013, but am reading them again for fun or profit.

In Progress: Books that I am currently in the process of reading. While this list is, sadly, almost never populated by a single book, I do try to keep it under three. As before, books preceded by a red bullet are actually re-reads. Likewise, if the title/author is red I haven’t actually picked it up or made any serious progress in over a week.

[X] Lost at Sea by Jon Ronson

[X] Déjà Dead by Kathy Reichs

[X] The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki

Honorable Mentions: Books that I have read, either again or for the first time, since the start of the year, but for one reason or another don’t consider as counting toward the overall goal.

[X] The Bed Of Procrustes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

To-Read: The big list. Books that I am seriously and eagerly intending to read. Titles aren’t listed in any particular order (except for a bias toward those that have already been purchased, if only because I can see them on the shelf next to my desk, as I type this). Just as before, a red bullet indicates that this is a planned re-read. List is not exhaustive, and titles aren’t linked to a Goodreads/Amazon profile.
