NYRB Classics - A Personal Selection

I've had a love affair with the NYRB Classics imprint for some time now, and while my enthusiasm has waned over the years, it continues to shape my reading habits, whether it be through finally getting to long ago purchases or discovering newly unburied authors. Caving into this weekend's sale left me with the desire to spread the love(/obsession), so here is my collection, ordered in terms of date added on Goodreads. If the intrigue of the titles/authors and the gorgeousness of the editions inspire a bit of purchasing of your own, well. There are far worse things one can invest in.
