One of my favourite things to do is read. I like having lists that help me to keep track of the books I am currently reading, have read, or plan to read in the future.

The books that I am currently reading are:


I ought to update this list often, but tend not to do so. A key can be found here for the ratings, if is desired. It is not exhaustive or refined, but nonetheless:
