January/February 2018 Reading

I’m going to start posting these monthly, rather than just one long list at the end of the year.  This is what I’ve read so far this year.  When I finish the two I’m working on and maybe some more short poetry works I’ve got checked out from the library I’d like to start on Crime and Punishment (again).  Maybe this is the year I’ll finally really take a stab at reading the Russians in earnest.
