To Read

This is where my "To Read" list will be maintained.  I've often come across a title that sounds fascinating, but rarely write it down or record it somehow to look up later.  Feel Free to leave recommendations in the comments!  I generally read literature (e.g. Austen, Dinesen, Wolfe, Bronte, Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Kafka, Gogol, Conrad) with some classic science fiction (e.g.  Heinlein, Asimov, Sturgeon) and the occasional very well written modern novel (e.g. Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman).
