My Bookshelf

I love reading. Most of the time I read multiple books simultaneously. During some seasons I read at a slower pace, during others I may finish multiple books a week.

Want to know what is on my bookshelf? On this page I plan to list the books I am currently reading as well as those I have recently finished.

Please note that just because I have read a book I would not always recommend it. Judging books by their covers is not always accurate! I occasionally post recommendations. 

How Do I Find Time to Read?

I consume books in print, digitally, and through audio. This enables me to read (or listen) whenever an empty space presents itself.

I have chosen to intentionally put down my phone. By saying no to the distraction of media I read more. This does not mean I never use my phone (I do!), but I endeavor to use my time intentionally.

You can follow me here on Goodreads. I update it more frequently. You can also see my thoughts and reviews on what I’m reading.

You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.

-Ray Bradbury
