2014 Reading List

Below is my “book” reading list for 2014. Not included in this list are the periodicals I read: The New Yorker, Poetry, and various awesome literary journals. By my rough estimation (counting texts below and periodicals), I easily read over 2,000 poems and somewhere close to 400 short stories. I, therefore, count 2014 as a successful reading year.
