My Current To-Read List

I have a list of stuff I’d like to read on my Goodreads list, but posting here makes a nice artifact for future reference, plus it’s a little easier to get a sense of priorities without all the noise.  There’s a bunch of stuff on my Goodreads list that I have little interest in reading at the moment, but I don’t want to remove it from my To Read list, if that makes any sense.  Oh well.  It makes sense to me, and that’s all that matters for these purposes. :D
