Books

I love reading.  I love books that grow me as an individual and I love books that expand my imagination. Over the years I’ve consumed hundreds of books and I’ve always regretted that I did not do a better job of keeping track of what I read.

So moving forward, this page is going to do just that.


How I Rate Books

Books are scored on a scale of 1.0 – 10.0.

  • 10 – Perfect. A life-changing book.
  • 9 – Excellent. Worth re-reading.
  • 8 – Very good.

  • 6 – Not bad.
  • 5 – This was an average book.
