Reading is important. It teaches you to focus, pay attention, put away your phone, and can expose you to new ideas, get you to think, or entertain you in ways that engage your brain.
All good stuff.
I have consistently been an inconsistent reader throughout my life. I go through phases where I read every day and phases where I don’t read for months on end. So this list comes with no guarantees.
Below is a list of books I’ve read, or am actively reading. This is not an exhaustive list of all books I’ve ever read. It only includes books I’ve read (or am currently reading) beginning May 2020. My most recent reads are listed first and older reads are listed last:
