My Bookshelf

Here is a list of books that I have read and/or bought for my own bookshelf at home. If you have a reading recommendation for me, I’d love to hear it!

(One of my favorite things to do when I have free time is wander around in bookstores, looking for cool new books to read! If I find something I like, I usually take a picture of it or write it down, then save up to buy it later.)
