Reading the 20th Century Project

[Back in 2005 I started an ambitious, perhaps impossible project to read an incrementally larger representation of 20th century literature by year, i.e., 1 book from 1901, 2 books from 1902, etc. Within a year I was sidetracked to other reading projects, like re-reading Lewis and catching up on the Tolkein I hadn’t read yet, but it is a project worth going back to.]
