Bookshelf

Several group houses I’ve lived in have had massive libraries. These have included contributions from past and current house members. While this results in a pretty impressive display, I often find myself at a loss when someone brings up the inevitable “Which books do you recommend?“. Alas, I often find myself struggling to put together an immediate response. With that in mind, I’ve assembled a list of books that I’ve read. It’s worth noting that just because a book appears on my list, does not necessarily mean I endorse its content. Where possible, I’ve tried to include a few sentences on my thoughts on the books. Hopefully I will someday have enough time to write mini-reviews for a more-than-negligible fraction of these books.

Since the books I’ve read lack any overarching order to them, so does this list (I apologize in advance). To make up for that, I am designating the various books with symbols to indicate my review:

  • 🧭 = “Life-Changing”
  • 💡 = “Recommended”
  • 🌟 = “5-stars”
  • ⭐ = “4-Stars”
  • 📚 = “There’s Better books”
  • 🤷 = “What the Hell did I just read?”

At some point I will add links to my notes where said notes on the books exist:
