A List Of PDR’s Books

This is a list of books that I both own and have read so I can keep track of what I’ve got. There are books I have read that aren’t on this list because I don’t own them. There are books that I own but have not yet read, so I haven’t put them on the list.

Up to date as of December 2012.
