Books Read, 2011

The following is a list of books I read during the course of 2011. I’m not sure anyone else would be particularly interested, but I started keeping track of the books I read, so I figured I’d post the list.

Many are “classics” that were on the reading list for my PhD comprehensive exams. The asterisks indicate books I’ve read before, but re-read in 2011.
