I wish I had started keeping these lists two decades ago. It would be fun to look over the hundreds
of books that I've certainly read in all those years -- some years more than others. Well, better
late than never, I suppose. But I'm sure it will be interesting to look back at these lists someday.
Of course, not all of the books on these annual lists made it into my groups of Favorites above.
Still, I'm glad I read these books, one and all, and I'm grateful to each author for writing
them. Maybe some of these books are, or will become, favorites of yours someday.
