Reading List

I’ve been a passionate reader for as long as I can remember. Lately I’ve been reading less, but I’m getting myself back on track using a tip I learned from Thomas Frank at The College Info Geek: Set a goal to read at least 20 pages of any book per day.

Since July 2016, I’ve read 6000+ pages (as of June 2017)
