My Favorite Books

Here is my (growing) list of favorite books, which of course deserve their own shelf. Some of these I’ve reread a bunch of times and others I’ve just read recently for the first time, but they’ve all earned their place on my favorites shelf and I recommend all of them. Check back to see if I’ve added anything new.
