2016 was as great year for reading -- 65 books in total. In 2017, though, I'm focused on a more tightly curated list of books, specifically to mitigate  fluff and emphasize literary fiction and non-fiction.

Books I've completed will be bolded. The first two are books I started in 2016 but never finished. It is almost certain I will not read these books in this order (or any order).
