Literature

In order to promote intellectual enhancement,something Television typically deprives the masses of,I decided to create a vast reading list made up of books I recommend.

The list is categorized by subject matter,favorite,or date accordingly – each book has been personally read by me and remains on my bookshelf for later reading as well.
I will continue to add books to the list every time I finish one,and if I think it may be suitable for some of my viewers I will then add it to the list when I have the time to do so.
