This list is constantly changing, mostly getting longer. I tried to link to the source of my interest in certain books, especially those recommended by fellow bloggers. The ones with stars are not available in my library system (Houston), so I’ll have to buy a copy or borrow from somewhere else. If you have any comments on this list, please leave them here or on my main blog page. If you think you were the one who recommended one or more of these books to me and I didn’t credit you, please leave a comment or a link.
