This is my intimidation list. I’m afraid of these books for some reason, but I still want to read them. I’m setting an arbitrary goal of my fortieth birthday: January 22, 2021.
If I’ve read a book, I’ll cross it off the list. If I decide not to finish a series (i.e., I may only read the first volume of Proust, for example), I’ll indicate as such. I also indicate the date I added it to my list.
