I love reading. I read to learn new things as a professional, I read for self-improvement, I read because I’m curious and I also read just because I enjoy it.
Below are some of my favorite books. Some of them I read and re-read many times, others I’ve read once but they made a significant impact on my life. Yet others may not be strictly my favorite but I keep recommending them to others for one reason or another.
This list is woefully incomplete and I will update and organize it when I can.
