“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

This project stems from a desire to continue reading great books throughout my life. My interest began (and remains) primarily in fiction, but the project has grown in many wonderful directions (click here for nonfiction). The foundation of the project comes from The New Lifetime Reading Plan.

I have given each book I read a hugely arbitrary rating. The ratings are based on the pleasure I felt in reading the book, what the book aimed to achieve, and how fully the book reached its potential. Thus High Fidelity rates slightly higher than Things Fall Apart because I enjoyed it more and though its ambitions were limited, it met them. I am not claiming it is a “better” book.
