Reading List

I am one of those people who can’t put down a good book. In fact, I love long flights because it’s really the only time I get to read good books without any real distraction or feeling that I should be doing something else “more productive” for work.  I love the days (usually a rainy Saturday or Sunday) when I just let myself get lost in the pages of a good book.  Here are some of my recent and recommended reads:
