Books I’ve Read

I like books. A lot. I consider myself a lifelong learner, and I like to keep my physical and virtual shelves stocked with books of all sorts. I usually pare the shelves every few years, tossing technical books that quickly became obsolete, bad reads, and the like, focusing on keeping those books that had an impact on me in some way.

While I love fiction and novels, I gravitate towards non-fiction because it makes me feel more productive. I very much hope to improve this mix in the future. Below are the books that I’ve read, beginning in early 2016.
