What I’m Reading

In 2014, I made a purposeful effort to read more books. I have always loved books and own a lot (my wife thinks maybe too many). Many of my books I haven’t read (yet), but I do like to look at them and know that one day they will be read. I went through my library, and marked on the binding all of the books that I have read just to keep track for myself. I am one of those guys that will view a person or household by the books on his shelves. Below you will find a list of books I have read over the past three years.

Take a look, purchase a copy of one, and dive into an extraordinary world.
