Who, me? A bibliophile? Why have this list of books?

The following is a list of books I have read in recent weeks/months/years. A red asterisk * after the book's title indicates a "reference book." This list may never be complete because I have listed only those books which I easily remember reading. If I retain but a small residue of all I read, I will consider myself lucky, healthy, and blessed!
