The Three Years of Hell Booklist

At the moment, this is a small smattering of the books I own, collected using Book Collector. Over the next year, I hope to make this a much more complete list of my reading, and perhaps include some links to a review or two. Many thanks to Handful of Sand for invaluable assistance in getting this set up.
