Books can be incredibly powerful. This list of books stopped time, took me on adventures, and influenced my thinking. They have taught me to think alone and seek the truth. They have given me new perspectives and helped shape my life forever.
My school-life was not a nightmare, but more about meandering through social conflicts. I did not have time to read while in the classroom. So from home, I found a burning desire to read. Reading books became an intimate friendship. I thank the Gallup outdoor market vendor who sold me my first Louis L’Amour book so many years ago.
