In 2015, I decided to list noteworthy books I’d read by topic and write a brief description so readers could decide if the book appeared worthwhile. When appropriate I included a link to a book review link and a link to the book on Amazon. The Amazon link is an affiliate link, which means I receive a few pennies if the book is purchased, via the link. That is my only compensation, I am not paid to endorse any of these books.

For a more complete look at what I read, visit my GoodReads page. Whenever I remember, I add my books to that page.
