This is a list of the books I have actually finished reading. Books that I just didn’t finish, usually out of boredom and a lack of interest, I did not include. Yes, I obviously need to read more books, and, yes, most of these books are either very readable or quite canonical. This explains my little knowledge about literature and my very limited vocabulary.

Suggestions are appreciated. But don’t expect me to get into reading all of your suggestions. Just recommend something that you think might be of interest to me, based on this list and what little you know about me :D.
