reading list

I’ve developed a bad habit of starting on a book then abandoning it mid-read. Sometimes it’s because it wasn’t that good in the first place, sometimes it’s because I didn’t bring it with me when I go places and out of boredom, I start on something new (I have books stashed in weird places). So, just to keep track of things, I’m gonna list down the book(s) I’m currently reading then strike it off once I’m done. So says thegrouch on the 8th day of May 2007.
I’ve also catalogued about 30% of my library. See the list here.
