Favorite Books

Trying to keep track of my “favorite” books is next to impossible. However, this list is a pretty good record of books that I would put into that category. It’s definitely nowhere near complete, but I will try and keep it updated with new entries that I consider my “favorites” on a semi-regular basis.

You can also follow me on Goodreads for a running list and ratings of the books I read.
