BOOKS READ A-L

These are all the books that I have completed since 1994 when I was about 24, so while it doesn’t include the college years, it does more or less cover my adult life. It does mean, however, that early favorites like Atwood, Forster, Hesse, Maugham, Shute, and others are underrepresented.

Keep in mind that these ratings do not really address literary merit. They merely represent how I felt about a book after reading it. So compare the ratings to other books of similar genre and quality, not necessarily to other books with the same rating.

Rating Scale:

10 – All time favorite
9 – Loved
8 – Almost loved
7 – Really liked
6 – Liked
5 – Ambivalent
4 – Almost disliked
3 – Disliked
2 – Really Disliked
1 – Hated
