Books that inspire

I'm always astounded when I hear that the average person reads less than one book a month. Some people don't even read that much in a year! I can't imagine what my life would be like without books. At any given time you'll find me reading up to five different books. I think of books as a tool I can use to further my knowledge, better my life, and in general, give me something meaningful to do with my free time.

When I was finishing up with grad school I worried that I was going to stop learning. I didn't ever want to stop going to school because I thought that would be the point where I would have all the information I needed and I had to go out an apply it.

Instead, I've realized that I'm continually learning and I look forward finding new books that will teach me something. You can find a list of some of my recommended reading here.
