Reading List 2016

spanish for to read, german for empty

[Leer is both the Spanish word for to read, and the German one for empty.]

Rather than offering any kind of guideline to anyone else but me, I will use this list to keep track of my readings this year. What, when, and how should be enough to get an overview of the different works I will come across within the next 12 months. Each item will be linked here to the respective entry as I complete the book.
