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!
