READING 1961

Attached is a list of the books I read in 1961. Sometimes I add markers like (*) to indicate books I particularly like. I also try to keep track of how many books of a particular kind (novel, etc.) and from a given country and century (Eng. 19th, etc.), I read each year. For the complete list of my reading since 1958, see http://www.seltzerbooks.com/readall.html
