The 2016 Book List

Following a New Year's Day tradition, I am posting a list of the books I've read in 2016.

Like 2015 and 2014, the overwhelming majority my reading has consisted of e-books - with most downloaded from Project Gutenberg. Looking back at previous year's book lists, it seems as if I've read only one book in hardcover or paperback since 2013 (Write Away  by Elizabeth George). When living in the U.S., I had plenty of opportunities to get my hands on cheap, used books. Getting a used book from isn't practical now.

So, here is the list of the 36 books I read in 2016.
