Art Garfunkel famously keeps track of the books he has read since 1968. As of writing this, the count is 1327 (he does not add a review). I thought I could do something similar but I am adding short reviews of books as I read them, and I rake my brain over what I read over the last decades. This is, evidently, a work-in-progress: there are 566 reviews so far. Titles marked with a * are particular favorites.

August Strindberg: Det røde værelse *

A debut, no less. Breaking ground with realism and – most of all, perhaps – exquisitely modern language, Oh, and a band of very interesting characters. For a debut, surely a work of international class and standing.
