What I Read in 2018.

The question I am most often asked: “..what books do you recommend?” The answer is nearly endless. I even go as far as to say that there is no such thing as a wasted read: you can always learn something.

People are often put off by that. In the spirit of being more helpful than snarky, I present my 2018 reading list. These are all great reads, so play a little book roulette and get started!
