Recommended Books

From the Favorites Shelf

Dear Reader,

Books will always be near and dear to my heart. When I don’t know something, I can surely learn it through books. When I identify a pain point in my life, books are there for me to help learn my way out of pain.

Over the past few years, I’ve accumulated a library of over 100 books, most of which I have read cover to cover.

In that library, I have an aesthetic white floating shelf I refer to as my “favorites shelf.” At any given time, there are between 13 and 20 books on that shelf ranked in order of how much I liked them. Below is the current configuration of my favorites shelf.

Though they didn’t quite make the favorites shelf, there are countless more books I highly recommend. Below is a list.
