Reading is a hugely important part of my life. I'm forever sending books to friends and family as a way of sharing my experience. The books I recommend here are those that have incomparably enriched my skills, my understanding of the world, and my life.

Well, here's your chance to browse my own personal bookshelf. Bonne lecture!
