2014 Calendar


The calendar is not laid out precisely; the months in the first column show graphically about when a book is to be read. I have a particular schedule for the books in the "Day-by-day" column; they are placed in approximate relation to the list of months, but their exact dates are given as well. The books in the "Other" column are placed in very loose approximation with the list of months. I plan to read some of the poetry of Keats, for instance, sometime in early March.

For considerations of space, I included only abbreviated references on this table. Details on titles and page numbers can all be found below the calendar as well as under the tab marked The List, next to the (8) in each category (since this is year 8).
