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 462 reviews so far. Titles marked with a * are particular favorites.


Jakob Paludan: Jørgen Stein  *

One of the three canonical Danish Bildungsromane (this, ‘Lykke-Per’, and ‘Niels Lyhne’), and a book that gets to the painful core of Danish existence, or any existence.
