This spreadsheet lists the books I’ve read since I decided to start keeping track in October 2004. School and work-related reading is not recorded. The ratings have to do with how much I think you should read the book, either because it is enjoyable or because I think it would be good for you.

“Thk” is the thickness of the book in millimeters. After January 2006, I measured the books with a caliper. Before then, data are from Amazon. Amazon lists thicknesses only to the nearest tenth of an inch, and I have probably chosen the wrong edition on many books, so these data are less accurate.
