A self-prescribed reading list. I also keep a reading log.
Socially expected to purchase a gift?
A book's the way to go, though I'd rather not read ones that don't interest me — yolo and all that. If you'd like to recommend a personal favourite, splendid . I will always read all books that are gifted to me, and this page is simply an attempt to avoid unvetted literatic works.
A note on sourcing
Titles can be sorted by my preferred mode of consumption, which is generally as a libary loan or, failing that, as an eBook. Second-hand copies in good condition are also appreciated. Each cover links to a potential online source, but if purchasing a hard copy, please do see if your local [second-hand] bookshop can source them first. They'll appreciate the business, even if — to a casual observer — they appear to be struggling to find one of the more obscure tomes in their supplier's database.
