Nobel Laureate Reading List

One of the goals on my life list is to read a work by every single Nobel Laureate. I have decided to start over, and not count anything I’d read previously (that’s only about 20 of the authors…). My goal is to read something from this list at least once a month.
This is a list of all the Nobel Laureates. As I read something by each author, I will record (1) what I read, (2) when I read it, (3) cross it off, and (4) link to my book review.
