A Librarian's Life List

This list represents a bookish life, from the first book I read (Fun with Dick and Jane) to the latest (The Lincoln Highway) in June 2022. It's about a third of what I've read in 54 years--the third that I liked best and can remember.
I like fantasy and SF, classics, historical fiction, mysteries, plays and poetry. In nonfiction I like history, bios, humor, books about the arts, travel, and fun reference books. But my tastes are eclectic and you will find treasures from every stage along the way. Enjoy!
