As someone who slept their way through high school and parts of college, reading the assigned books was always an issue for me. 

Matter-of-fact, when I first arrived at Shippensburg University, we were supposed to have read a book to discuss in groups during freshman orientation.  When the professor expectedly called on me to answer a question about the book, I politely told him that I hadn't done the reading. Much to my surprise, the world did NOT end, which is why I'm able to tell you about the books that I have personally selected for myself to read since then. 

Here are the books I've read since graduating:


If you've read any of these books and would like to discuss them, please contact me!  And if there are any books that I should be reading, I want to hear about them, too!

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. ... They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
