Books I’ve Read in 2006

I never used to keep track of the books I read.  I would write a journal on the ones I find memorable, but I felt that a book list would reduce my reading to a number game, and give me reason to opt for a thin paperback rather than a serious, thick, non fiction hard bound.  However, Aki challenged me on how many books I read in 2006, so I tried to reconstruct the list, and here it is, and that’s how it started.
