Books that helped define me:

One day I was performing my spring cleaning and finally decided to get rid of so many of the books I’ve held onto over the years that have meant so much to me. It was not the physical books, but rather the metaphysical content that held the meaning. The book itself was just a vessel. I am making this list now to capture these books and now serve as the vessel. And yes some are just sentimental creatures from my schooling.
