About the List Above
I will include only those books that I start with belief that I may read them completely. I will fill in the End Date when I either finish a complete reading or abandon the reading. I will not include books which I only scan for particular information.

This list was started in November 2018 for the purpose of social networking. I hope it may interest my friends or help me make new friends.
