Book Log

I read a lot. I've been keeping a book log since the beginning of 1999. I've read 2163 books since then (about 83 books per year).

Below is the list for this year. See complete list.

Currently Reading

The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
by Thomas S. Kuhn A classic in the field of philosophy of science.
Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things
by George Lakoff This book has been on my to-be-read list forever. I don't know when I first heard the title. Maybe when I was an undergraduate. Maybe I saw it listed as one the author's other books when I read "Metaphors We Live By" (in 2008).
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter 2)
by J.K. Rowling Reading this with my husband, who has never read the series.
