My Book Library

Updated: 19 hours ago

Below is a list of the books I've read after graduating high school. Learning should not end after your school years. Most of what you learned in school probably isn't useful and you probably have forgotten it anyway. Books offer high-quality information on whatever subject you desire. They're convenient, cheap, and even available as audiobooks so you can listen to them in the car.

These are categorized into audiobooks and paper books. They are in roughly the order I read/listened to them.

The books I give 5 stars and would highly recommend are in bold.
