Books I’ve Been Reading

This an interminable list. I’ve divided it into current, recent and memorable. I hope the categories are self-evident. Each title is linked either to the author’s website, reviews or, if out of print, a possible source of supply. Most callers here will have their favorite suppliers for ordering if so inclined. Now the challenge is to keep this list up to date!
