Reading List 4 of 2017

March 31, 2017


On 2.20.17, I abruptly developed an aversion to poetry, so I haven’t been reading it.


Covers the period from 3.12.2017 through 3.31.17

I/we own 3 of these items. I saw 1 movie on Netflix/Amazon. Baltimore County Public Library system supplied 16 of the books and movies; libraries in other parts of Maryland, via Inter-Library Loan, supplied the other 14.
