📚 Reading

Below is a collection of books I often recommend to others. I've grouped them by genre but in no particular order. I'll likely update this list as I come across others.

Since 2021, I've been taking detailed notes as I read new books. Any recommendations below that have book notes are linked accordingly.

I'm also always on the lookout for my next great read, so if you have one please send it my way via Twitter.
