Favorite Books

Here is a list of books I’ve read and loved. Some books you might have read. Some you might have never heard about. The categories are there for quick reference but some books are not so easily placed.

Regardless of their notoriety, I suggest that everyone should read these books at least once. It’s less of a “these are the best books ever” and more of a “these are good books that expand horizons.”
