I was a bibliophile before I learned the alphabet. From an early age I have used books to relieve the pressures of reality. I was I teenager before I appreciated the learning power of books. Now, as an adult, I read books for both learning and relaxation.

  1. I feel you on this blog post, there’s so many books that I want to read and haven’t yet. I highly recommend 1984 and Life of Pi, both were two of my favorite books I got to read in school. God I miss when I was assigned reading like that for homework. What are some other book recommendations?
