This page exists for two reasons:

  1. I get tired of writing out references, and would rather copy and paste.
  2. I am always searching for specific books, and figure other people might too. So if that is you, drop me a line if you want me to look up anything.

It is not complete. (I might get round to noting them all. One day.) If a title is missing but you think I might have it, then drop me a line.
