I am attempting to read the books in the order they are listed.  But it is not something I’m sticking heavily to.

If you really want to follow the updates to the list (like when I purchase new books and when I bold out titles that I finish reading) then you might want to follow my Livejournal.

Also, you can find reviews of the books I read on this blog, but don’t count on them in any sort of regular time period.  I’m terrible at actually writing the reviews.
