It’s that time again when I scan my shelves and wish lists for books crying out to be read. I’ve culled the pile to a manageable 3000 pages. Here’s what’s in the queue for my ‘pastoral reading’. There are reasons for each of these, some of them fairly idiosyncratic. If something I ought to read is missing, then by all means let me know. As well, if there is something here you think I could just as well avoid.
