I’ve been making a special effort these past few years to fritter away less time in front of the Television, and spend more time reading.

As you can see, it’s an odd mix of music memoirs, scripture, spiritual philosophy and inspiration, with one book on the history of soccer in my hometown mixed in.
So far in 2023, I’ve followed that same pattern. 🙂
