The Master List!

So here’s the master list of my unread physical book collection as it stands at the end of 2015!  This is what will guide my reading throughout the next year.  I make it 173 on this list below, which gives me a fair whack to chip away at.  Bear in mind, I also read on my Kindle, and that will probably be a future challenge to chip away – but at least it doesn’t take up space!
