Books Matthias Has Read


Just to give folks who may enjoy my own stories a taste of what sort of things I like to read, I've decided to post a list of stories that I myself have read. This is by no means complete as I used to read a lot more before I started college (and I've probably forgotten a bunch of stuff I've read since then). I'm getting back into the habit now, and so I felt I should keep track of what I read. I also read stories to my wife, and any such story will be marked in red.
