*like derrida, i have not read all of the books in my library, but i do hope to read these five books well.

**both of these lists are always works in progress.

ed. note: it is difficult for me to think about lists of books because really i’m more into articles and stories. and because i have a hard time remembering the things regardless of how much i like them. so these lists are actually just books that i appeared in my life more than once and stuck around. i am catholic; i need repetition.
