I believe you have to be a lifelong learner. It is the only way you can continue to grow and mature as a person spiritually, socially, mentally, physically, and emotionally. One of the ways I have found that meets many of these criteria is reading. It spurs me on to explore new ideas, think about new things, and change my perspective on how I see the world.

Therefore I wanted to keep a running list of books I have read along with condensed thoughts on what I observed and learned from each book. I am not conceited enough to believe people will begin to look at me as a writing critic, but I believe there is value in writing your thoughts down so you can share them with others and have conversations about them. It challenges you and others to never stop exploring, growing, and thinking.

I will be adding a subsequent title after I finish each book. Click on each title listed below for a recap of my thoughts. Hope you find something new you might enjoy on this growing list.
