Current Reading List

“To be a good writer one must read great writing,” Regina told me. I believe her. Regina and I have been holding onto one another since I was six months old. She carried me around Europe and then taught me how to write and how to read.

I tend to read three books at one time, and for now, that’s okay with me. And sometimes it takes me two months to finish a really good novel or a whole year to get through a spiritual book. Nevertheless, reading as a form of practice and self-study is an essential part of my daily routine.

Here’s a list of what I’ve read so far this year: with the intention to inspire, push, and have us ask better questions of ourselves, like, “Who Am I Kidding.”

Delight thy senses and if nothing else, entertain thy mind.

Also, if you can find an audio recordings of any of these books read by the author, it’s SO worth it!
