Books I Like

Writing cannot exist without reading. Reading is critical to becoming a better writer. Reading was critical to surviving prison. It is through reading that I have developed an understanding of the beauty and power that words can command.

In no particular order here is a list of my favorite books.  Some of them transported me to a different time and place, some of them made me look deep within myself. But all of them had an impact.
