an eudæmonistreading


All her generation use their brains too scrupulously upon books, seeking meaning rather than letting themselves run on for pleasure which is more or less my way, & thus naturally richest & best.

—Virginia Woolf, Diaries I.192 (10.ix.1918).


From July 2002 the books cited are comprehensive and articles are cited as occasion warrants. Prior to July 2002, only books read for pleasure are listed. Starting in 2006, grey text (such as this) signifies the book is a zine or graphic novel. From 2010, books read on an ereader (of whatever sort) are marked with a ‘d’ after the number; audiobooks, when I feel like counting them, are marked with an ‘a’ in the same fashion. Also, I thought it might be nice to make a few brief notes about what I read; these notes are mostly meaningless.

2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 & 2024.

I am also trying to keep the list of books I would like to read up to date, but that might be aspirational rather than accurate.
