Books I Like

Contrary to my loud rock n roll stage persona, I'm actually quite an introverted person. I spend most of my spare time reading. 

Here's some books that I feel helped shape me. Take them with a grain of salt, I don't believe everything in these books, but I must've gotten found at least one or two golden nuggets in them. Anyway, maybe you'll like some of these, too! I'll be adding more as I go along.
