Books

I'm a hopeless lover of books. Words are the building blocks of thought, imagination, creativity and endless conversation. It creates a world of its own, and really, the kind of words and ideas and principles you fill your mind with makes you what you are. Because, as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Autobiographical works, historical fiction, philosophical and Christian literature are my favorite genres. Here's a constantly updated list of my most memorable reads, both recent and all-time favourites in my books!
