“Our gentleman became so immersed in his reading that he spent whole nights from sundown to sunup and his days from dawn to dusk in poring over his books, until, finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”

― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

This project stems from a desire to read great books throughout my life, inspired years ago by The New Lifetime Reading Plan. My interest began (and remains) primarily in fiction, but the project has grown in many wonderful directions and is now organized by genre.
