Books Read, Midway Through 2017 Edition

I am way behind on my reading (and blogging) this year. There are a few reasons, such as general busyness and taking the time to catch up on some periodicals, such as older issues of "The New Yorker," "New York Review of Books," and "The Atlantic Monthly." Plus, reading Mervyn Peake's took more time than I imagined. It is a brilliantly written novel, but the language is so rich and dense I had to read a bit slower to take it all in.

Now, without further delay, here is an alphabetical list of the books I've read in the first half of this year. So far, my 2017 reading has been heavy on fantasy and Buddhism.
