The Book List

I know it’s fading out of fashion these days, but reading will always be an important activity to me. I’ve read books that shaped my world, books that have influenced my writing, books that have infiltrated my dreams.  I can think of nothing that sends the imagination spinning, actively for long stretches of time, like reading does.  These are endless distances. 

In tribute to reading, this is a list of books that have shaped my thinking and expanded my world, for the better.  Feel free to comment if you have any recommendations!
