Reading books is my preferred method to learn about a new topic (non-fiction) and wind down when my mind is racing (fiction). For my own personal reference, I keep a list of books I read each year. You can find the list for the current year below!

Links point to my book notes where available. Bold denotes books I’d highly recommend.
