Reading Older Books 2014

I’m trying that reading older books thing again this year, where “older” = published before 1970. Last year I said I’d aim for 1 older book read for every 2 newer books; this year I’m aiming for the more ambitious 2 older books for every 3 newer books. This pages lists all the older books I’ve read so far, and links any posts I might have written about the individual titles, and the project as a whole.
