I’ve added a book list because my passion for reading rivals my passion for beauty. The purpose of this list is to share books that I consider to be great reads, that have inspired me, taught me something new, and encouraged me to push my boundaries. I would like to encourage all of you to read more. As George R. R. Martin said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies… The man who never reads lives only one.” Let’s choose to live a thousand lives.
