Best Books Of All Time -- The Master List

Updated December 31, 2016

Here's a very incomplete master list of books I've read. I begin with a list by rating (so you can see which books I gave a perfect four out of four stars to, for example), then one by author.

I've only got year-by-year lists of my reading going back to 2006. Before that, it's very catch as catch can. Since I've also considerably winnowed down my personal library without recording the books I got rid of over the years, I don't even have a good record of the books I SAVED for decades. So please understand that this isn't remotely comprehensive. If I seem overly generous in the number of 3 1/2 and 4 star books, well those are simply the ones I remember best. The many minor books I consumed over the years (especially reams and reams of sci-fi and mysteries as a kid) have faded from memory. Any weird gaps (I've read a lot more Dickens than I've listed, for example) are perhaps because I don't remember with enough specificity what I thought of certain books to rate them.

Art Garfunkel and Peter Bogdanovich had the right idea! Keep a list, everyone; you'll be glad you did. What I wouldn't give for index cards with my brief thoughts on the movies I watched, books I read, albums I heard from a young age onward....
