What I Was Reading On October 11 For Each of the Last Sixteen Years

Because I thought it would be interesting to list out, here is what I was reading on October 11 starting with October 11, 1996 and continuing through today. There are only a couple of days when I wasn’t actually reading anything (finished a book and hadn’t yet started another one). It’s kind of an interesting list to look at.
