A list of many genres. I've even included a couple of books from Listopia's 'Best Bodice Ripper Romances'; hopefully they will be able to resuscitate any readers facing death. At the risk of finishing them off more quickly.
Most of the books are ones that caught my eye while I was doing my annual update of previous challenges. Many of them are unread works from my favourite authors. As well, quite a number of interesting NYRB works were drawn from the challenges of Korrick and others.
