Books

Books I've read in the past. I might have written something about them, meaning the entries here will have a [review] link to a corresponding weblog posting. Otherwise, I try to link them to their page on Goodreads. The date denotes the day I started reading. Generally, the date of the next book is when I finished the last :)

You can find me on Goodreads too. Maybe become book friends? :)
