Reading



In the Fall of 2002, I began to keep a list of books as I read them.
In Jan. 2005, as part of an effort to improve my writing, I decided to concentrate on books in Harold Bloom's Western Canon.
In Sept. 2005 I swore-off watching television.

Classics
Philosophy, Theology & Religion
Social Commentary, Cultural Studies & History
Computers, Science & Technology
Science Fiction & Fantasy
