The 2011 Reading List

Here we are in 2011, a new year and a new reading list (with a slight overload of Burroughs perhaps due to some happy coincidences). Note that I still haven’t been able to get a hold of the Bjørneboe trilogy yet, but I’m making it one of my missions for this year. As ever, any suggestions for additions are more than welcome. Happy reading!
