Books read to 1984: transcribed book lists

by Ralph Dumain

Note: This cannot be a complete record of my childhood book reading, as I started buying books from the time I learned to read. The first books I acquired were all science books for children, on astronomy, the planets, chemistry, and my other favorite sciences. (I believe many of the titles were The How and Why Wonder Book of ______. I also subscribed to the magazine Highlights for Children, which was where I learned Galileo’s birthday, which I’ve celebrated ever since.) Then I got into science fiction, and I read most of the 13 original James Bond books in the summer of 1964. (I remember bringing them with me to summer camp, didn’t take me more than a day or two to read each one.) I also collected comic books and Mad Magazine. All this before the autumn of 1965, before this list begins.

Some of the lists are probably not complete for the relevant time period, especially the short lists. I was always a compulsive reader. Some seasons are missing, particularly the first two summer seasons in this sequence (1965, 1966) and a whole year. Indications to the contrary, a few of these books must have been read for school, as I never would have touched them otherwise. Other books read for school are undoubtedly missing. I will add memories of other books not on the list and will focus on some of those listed here. Magazines, book chapters, pamphlets, etc., are generally not included, though there are a few items that are not really (published) books, including at least one doctoral dissertation.

I could not possibly have read some of the books listed here, as they are not books I am likely to or could have read straight through; chances are I skimmed or otherwise surveyed them. And who actually reads dictionaries, or most textbooks? There are others which I suppose I read but find it difficult to believe that I did, especially since I have no memory of some books or knowledge of some authors. There are a number of surprises here, including some of the dates. In any case, it will be evident what a straight-up nerd I was growing up. Though I would highly recommend some books, this is not a recommended reading list. As for the first couple of years listed below, I was a child, don’t judge me. Generally speaking, I would think that most people’s exposure to books outside of school is fairly random, and even the intellectually inclined not hemmed in by academic requirements hit a somewhat coherent stride only later in life.

The dates indicate the date I recorded as having finished reading the book. While I doubt that I actually read or read through some of these books, others I know I read at some time are missing. Some books appear here twice. Others I probably read twice or multiple times may only be listed once, and not necessarily the first reading. Some of the entries indicate what I was interested in at the time, others are random. Conversely, I remember having interests at various times that are not really represented here.

This list ends in 1984, with my permanent departure from Buffalo, New York.
