My Books

Francis Bacon once said that “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” These are the books that I never stop chewing on. Each text has shaped my thinking, my personality and the way that I view the world. Many of them were discovered in middle and high school (where I indulged the most in escapism), but a few were published only months ago. What books are on your list?
