book reviews


I value education, literacy, and communication.

As an avid reader of diverse subjects, I write a monthly book review of both fiction and nonfiction books I find inspiring, thought-provoking, and educational. These books may or may not be an endorsement of my current values or beliefs; nevertheless, I took the time to formulate a review because I found them worth sharing with others.
