Books that I finish will be in green, and books that I start but DNF will be in red. Completion dates will be listed at the end. Starting dates are not recorded.


This list was compiled for my 2018 Reading Challenge. I will be continuing to read from this list after that challenge has finished, but this list is only tracking reading dates after 1/1/2018. Several of these books are re-reads, but that is not tracked here.


Shakespeare’s individual plays are listed as well as the Complete Works; I’ll add completion dates for each play separately, with the last one read also marking the completion of the Complete Works.

At the time I created this list, I had intended to read some books that I’m no longer interested in. In cases like those, I’m removing the books from the list for the sake of an accurate book count.
