Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been into books. I read it all: fiction, non-fiction, educational, fluff—it’s one of my favourite ways to pass time. Often I’m asked what books I’ve read that have really made an impact. Sometimes this question is posed by those interested in knowing what I read to be better at what I do for a living. Others ask with a more personal intention, wondering what books stuck with me because of their story. Since Spring is upon us, the time is approaching when hours can be spent reading outdoors. So what better time to share a list of some of my favourites?
