I’m starting with books I have, or have borrowed. I had intended to do books I haven’t yet read. There’s one on this list that I started last year but never finished. I included one from everyone who recommended me a book. Then assigned a number to the 20+ books and did a random number generator for the other handful that I needed.

I started reading last night, and I will be accompanied by a friend on this journey. I started with My Lobotomy by Howard Dully and Charles Fleming. I’m only a few pages in, but it’s very intriguing. I shall update when progress has been made.
