Here, in no particular order, are a list of the books I have already read, am reading, or plan to read this summer. It’s not 50 books long yet, and if you have a suggestion, feel free to let me know about it through whatever means of communication you feel most comfortable with. I’m leaving that request fairly open-ended, since I suspect it’s mostly a byproduct of me not knowing what I don’t know about what books are out there.
