Above is the list of books I have been reading since I started keeping track of them in late 2012. Books marked with an asterisk * signify that I have re-read those books having first read them prior to keeping track of what books I have read. I make a point of trying to read On the Road by Jack Kerouac and The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri at least once a calendar year.
