Reading List

Here is what I enjoy reading currently or have read that made an impact on me. There are numerous books, not listed here, that I started or skimmed through but didn’t complete. Not that those are bad books per se, but it was either too long to hold my attention or had very little substance.

My Goodreads reviews for some are highlighted in green.
