Books I read

Hello there!

Welcome to my humble little library. I dedicate this place to the books I read. I wrote an article recently describing my journey on how I got back to reading. I had taken a 10 years hiatus on the written word. Now I can’t help but read anything that fall in my lap.

On this page, I would like to share with you the books that I have read since I got back on track. Note that some will contain affiliate links. I won’t necessarily recommend books, but I will share my insights about them. Let’s get started.
