Books

I discovered books far too late in my life. This page is a testament to my efforts to make up for this fact.

Open

The books that I'm actively (however sporadically) reading at the time of updating this page.

Personal Canon

Currently in the early phase of building this for myself, but my plan is to have a set of books that I continuously return to and study thoroughly.

  • The Conquest of Happiness
