Growing up, I viewed reading as a chore.  If I was assigned a reading assignment, I would actively avoid it—I’d rely on Spark Notes to pass the exams.

But when I hit my early/mid-twenties, I fell in love with reading.  I normally read technical books, to satisfy never-ending thirst for knowledge but recently, inspired by my fiancée, I started reading fiction too.  Here’s a running list of the books I’ve read I’ve read:
