Greetings, hi, hello.

Welcome to my site. This is where I showcase my work and write about this thing called life. Enjoy!

Reading list.


I threw this piece together after seeing Kelly Bergin's list. Turns out, I didn't read nearly as many books this year as I wanted to, or thought I did. Maybe I did read more, maybe those books just failed to make an impact on my Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Powell's accounts. Who knows? A few too many light hearted beach reads, cookbooks and even a couple self-help type books (judge freely). Guess I have a few more weeks to change that.
