Books Read 2016

The pleasures arising from thinking and learning will make us think and learn all the more” – Aristotle, Ethics

If you know me, you know that I firmly believe in reading and continually learning. It is essential that you train your mind just as you train your body.

Whether you read for pleasure or purpose the result is the same: the betterment of yourself and the world you create…
