Books

I keep track of all the books I read since 2002. I know, it's narcissistic and pointless, but I can't help it. Once upon a time, I used to forget about some of the (less remarkable) books I read. To stop that from happening, I decided to write down the names of the books. In the lists below, I've highlighted with boldface the ones that I liked the most, books that I felt a need to read all over again before I had even finished reading for the first (or second!) time. Oh, and some friends of mine also keep lists of books they've read, which I find extremely cool: W and Vinicius
