Library - list of recommended Books

Updated: Aug 21, 2022

I guess you could say that knowledge is my special interest. Honestly, I didn't read until my mid 20s. I struggled in school and English classes, mostly skating by on knowledge I could hack to get a passing grade in High School and Hiring someone to write my essays in the one English class I took in college. Hand me an economics, math, or engineering book though and I would speed through it. Turns out, it was due to the format. The books for those classes had numbers and pictures.

It wasn't until grad school that I accidentally discovered audiobooks and would soon find my groove reading everything. It happened by accident after training to run a marathon while taking night school. I needed a way to run and read at the same time; enter audiobooks. This new mode of reading allowed me to focus on the content without having to stare blankly at the text for hours without absorbing it. Today I use a combination of audio books and open dyslexic font and have read hundreds of (mostly non-fiction but some fiction) books.

Sometimes the smallest change makes the biggest difference.
