The Library

I started reading towards the end of my college career at the University of Michigan and it has since become a lifelong habit. I think it’s the best source of curated knowledge you can find.

I read fiction and non-fiction. I read multiple books at the same time. I read every day.

Below you’ll find my all time favorites as well as what I’m reading now and what I’ve recently finished. Each book has had a major influence on my life.
