KG’s Book List 2020

May 29, 2020

I was an English Literature major in college because I love books. I mean, I LOVE them. Some people say that you gain ten years of wisdom by reading a solid, well written book because we gather the best of that author’s hard won knowledge, experience, and research in one resource. Then, we get to apply their expertise to our lives. Does reading make us smarter? Yes, you bet it does.

Reading also teaches us to access our feelings, to think deeper, to climb into another’s shoes, and to go beyond our small worlds.

I also find that I’m a much more interesting person when I read. I have things to talk about and I bring interesting insights to a conversation when I’m learning from books.

So what am I reading this year? Well, here is my list. It’s long, and it may take me all year to get through them, but with Audible’s help I’m going to do it!
