Posted on 2/1/2018 to Books

As I mentioned in the Books section of the site, I love to read. I read a ton as a kid, but that diminished quite a bit as an adult. Over the past few years, I’ve started reading more, including 52 books in 2017.

A quick heads up to let you know that I’ve added a new page to my site—Books. This page currently features a list of books I’ve recently read. In the future, I’ll probably include a list of books I’m currently reading, as well as my list of books to read.

I hope you take a look, and even find one or two books to read. Perhaps Disrupted, the book I just finished.
