My Bookshelf

Last updated: January 22, 2019

(Inspired by Patrick Collison’s bookshelf.)

I write posts every few months featuring some of my favorite books at the time and spend most of my leisure or travel time reading. I bought a Kindle merely for the convenience of not having to carry four books in my luggage and when the best workout I had in years was moving boxes of books into a moving truck, I realized I may buy too many book. My close friends can expect me to give them a book if they come over for dinner and we end up on some tangent about philosophy, psychology, economics, or some niche subject I was interested in for a few weeks.

Still, a “recommended books” page changes with my mood or what I am thinking about at that time. I can’t say I recommend every book on this list. But chances are I heard good or interesting things about it and figured to pick it up. Books are cheap. A good book can earn you 100x on what you spend on it or can save you 100x its cost.

So, instead of putting together a list of books I recommend, here’s a list of books I have purchased on Amazon (or Audible) since December 2016 (an arbitrary date I chose to limit this list). This does not include books purchased before December 2016, books purchased at brick-and-mortar bookstores, or books borrowed from friends.
