Reading is one of my favorite hobbies. I don't read nearly as much as I would like, but when I do find time I love it. My readings range in topics from astronomy, World War II, history, fiction, fantasy, biographies, religion and more. Whether it's on a road trip, during classes, or at home before bed, reading is an outlet many of use to escape reality. There is an aspect of reading that brings the reader to another place in time, breaking the reader's awareness of the world around them.
Growing up, my grandma and grandpa always kept a collection of fantastic picture-style books on the coffee table in the living room. Picture books of European castles, international travel, and war were commonplace. I loved them as a kid, and after chatting with relatives and playing with cousins for a while, I would find myself on the living room couch paging through these books in awe. I was inpsired by the sense of wonder they instilled in me as I looked at the world that I was just beginning to explore. Of recent, I've started collecting a handful of National Geographic, astronomy, and war books filled with the same enchantment as my grandparent's books. One day, I hope my kids and grandkids will exprience the same thing I did when visiting grandpa's house.
I've compiled a list of some of my favorite books in no particular order, along with their respective authors for reference. (Last updated 09/20/2016)
