I have maintained a list of every book I’ve read since 1982. (I did once have an earlier list, stretching back to the mid-seventies, but this was irretrievably lost at some point, and my memory is not good enough to recreate it.) I thought it would be a fine thing to create a gallery of the covers of these many, many books, where possible showing the edition I read – not always possible when I borrowed the book from a library. Here is a first stab at the project, showing the first six books I read in 1982. The next half-dozen will appear tomorrow.
