  1. I always like other people’s reading lists – because they give an insight into the other person’s life; because they give ideas for my own reading; because they can give a foundation of common experience if I’ve read the same books or authors.

    • I think so too. A bit like looking through someone’s bookcase. I started listing these so that I could keep a record myself, although I left my 2011 list unattended in the last quarter. My list so far this year looks a bit focused, but by the end of the year should look more diverse.
