A retrospective look

My intent is to update this regularly in the future as I finish books, but I'll catch up on 2017 really quickly now. It has been a busy year (so far more than 40 flights, plus studying for Level 2 of the CFA exam throughout May) but I managed to get through a lot of material.

It's a pretty diverse list- Czech, Russian, and German novels, a graphic novel, art history, some philosophy, statistics, computing, and even some political commentary.

Here's a quick rundown, arranged in order of how recently I finished them.
