2023 The Complete List (of read & will-read books)

As a United Statesian taxpayer, I whole-heartedly utilize my local library. 
Books should absolutely be bought and paid for, 
but there's no need to not-read a book, because you cannot afford it. 
Your local library literally has a ... library ... full of books that are available to you, for FREE.
As a resident of Hawai'i, I use the Hawai'i State Public Library System
