Welcome to the BOOKSHELF. This is my way of sharing with you just what I’m reading and what I’ve read in the past in hopes that it might spur you on to more reading, and better reading. If there’s one life principle that I continually live by it’s this: the world belongs to those who read. I was given that principle by a professor in college and it’s really something that I believe holds true in this life. Reading is something everyone should do, young or old, and I hope the books I recommend in this section will help you in all areas of life.
