Library Goals <3

IGodfreyKneller-IsaacNewton-1689saac Newton, an avid reader, owned 1,763 volumes (1). The man was reported to have read 18 hours a day; a consumer of knowledge. This is quite aspirational, and so it has inspired the following goal: to read 1,800 volumes.

This page will keep readers up-to-date on what books are currently being read, and the sub-menus under the main “Library” menu will list all the books completed, by subject, to date.

If any of you in Internet-land have some suggestions, I’m all eyes…unless you want to send me an audio file (please don’t).
