My Personal Library

:book: Books I own! :book:

I have not read all of them, and some of them I have read several times. Links to reviews are included if I have reviewed them. These are all of the physical books that I own, or at least the ones I care enough about to categorize and keep track of. I take advantage of the library and eBooks quite a bit as well. Some day I may attempt to list those too.

Compiling and sorting this is a work-in-progress.
