READING 1980

Attached is a list of the books I in 1980. 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. Richard Seltzer seltzer@seltzerbooks.com
