What a great concept! I'm sure I will never complete the list, but it should be fun to see where I gravitate. Also, it will push me to read more widely. I'm starting from today, as I'm too lazy to incorporate my past books...

823 I was disappointed by The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. **
For future reference:
* = I hated it, it's a wonder I bothered to finish the book.
** = Did not like it.
*** = It was ok, fine, I kind of liked it.
**** = I really liked it.
***** = Life changing. Truly amazing.
The Introvert Advantage ****
I really enjoyed most of this book. Introversion is not something to be corrected, it's just a different temperament. It has a different set of advantages and disadvantages than extroversion. Just this realization is enough for me to gain a greater acceptance of myself, and that is a beautiful thing.
I think this book is a keeper, and I will refer to it in the future.
Dewey # 811 - American Literature, Poetry
Howl and Other Poems *
I wanted to like this, but alas, it was above me. I had to make myself finish it, luckily it's a short book. I wish I had a better understanding of literature and poetry so that I can appreciate works like this.
lol, I've got Ginsberg's complete collection sitting on my shelf, and I really enjoy it. But it's still probably going to take me most of my life to get through it. It's huge.
Dewey # 320 - Political Science
The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism by Andrew J. Bacevich ***1/2
Another book that explains and warns about American Imperialism. Parts are a bit dated now, but the overall theme is very important for the present and foreseeable future.
