Books

The real reason to read is to meet more interesting people than we have time to meet in a lifetime.
– Harold Bloom

If you aren’t already using another friend or family member’s Amazon code, I’d ask that you change your browser’s shortcut for Amazon to this URL and use it whenever you start a book-browsing or other shopping session. You’ll get the same selection and prices (occasionally, you may even see a better deal offered), and Amazon will give me a little credit for having sent you there.

Here’s a list of the books I’ve finished reading in the past years. I don’t bother finishing a bad book — I figure that if the first two chapters are junk its not getting any better. Life is too short to read junk. So if I’ve finished it, its at least good. More stars means better than good.
