What I’m Reading


It's called reading it's how people install new software into their brains

I’ve heard it said that “readers are leaders.” I agree with that statement, however, it is important that we read worthwhile material. If you are interested in what I am reading this year, here is my 2016 reading list. I will be posting reviews for selected books throughout the year.
