2018 Book List

This was supposed to go up at the beginning of the year, but hey, better late than never right?

Last year I surprised myself with the books I read. Unexpectedly I ended up reading some considerably long titles, and I like to believe my taste in books is, if not maturing, broadening. I mean a few years ago I had promised myself I would never read Shakespeare. Ever. Along with reading “classic” books, I hope to enjoy more non-fiction books.
