Reading List

I love to read. Ever since I am done with formal education, I find myself with more time than before. I used to say that I wanted to read more classics, but now I find myself reading more than just classics. Contact me with suggestions of cool books/short stories/poems to read.

Here, I maintain three lists. One for what I am currently reading, one for what I am going to read, and one for what I have already read. There are also different projects that I use to track various collections of books that of a certain theme (e.g. awards, author, series).

Many of these lists are long (and can contain their own lists!), so look for the ellipses ``...'' to show the hidden away stuff.

Currently reading

The list here represents books that I am currently concurrently reading. I will often read the week's The Economist before I touch any of the books here.

The [Almost] 20th Century Pulitzer Project

I tend to have a bias in the choice of books. To avoid that systemic problem, I have included this list of books that had won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in the years 1910--1999 (i.e. [almost] 20th century). I don't expect to finish this list since many of these books may no longer be available, but I will try my best. Read books will be struck out here and have an entry in my already read list. The lists are long, so you will find lots of ellipses to hide them away...
