Literature



Below are some of the books I have read, or am in the process of reading!  

I find it extremely helpful to reflect upon a book I have just finished, specifically with regard to lessons related through the narrative.   As someone who tends to devour books before I can really process the deeper truths contained within, this is pretty imperative for me.  

Perhaps you'll learn something new, too, from these great literary figures!  Though, I must warn you, that most of my reflections on these literary pieces do contain spoilers!
