alright, i own it. this is a shameless rip-off of po chin's "all-i've-ever-read" page. nowhere as complete as hers, unfortunately. i try only to list fiction and essays, and only non-school books, but sometimes they creep in here.

adden. november 2008: decided to include some non-fiction too. and poetry. and things. but inconsistently. ah well.
