Books are like school for adults. And therapy.
Thanks in part to a 6 week trip away, I’ve laughed, sobbed, and aha-momented my way through a good stack of fiction and non-fiction books this year. So I thought I would list my top reads here. So that you can read them too. But also so that future me does not forget about them, as is the raison d’être of this blog.
