Develop into a lifelong self-learner through voracious reading; cultivate curiosity and strive to become a little wiser every day
— Charlie Munger

The following is a culmination of what I've read so far. The list will continue to expand as I continue the quest to become wiser everyday. As much as I know I should read a wide array of subjects I strongly believe in only reading books that interest and excite me.. because if it doesn't I don't retain any information (i.e. my accounting textbooks). So you'll get a sense of the zone I'm in based on what I'm reading these days.

I hope to fill out book notes for the various books I've read (not all of them) and that too will be constant work in progress. I've opted not to categorize them so you can "run into one by chance" and you can interpret the category your own way.

If you have any requests on book notes, are dying to recommend a book I MUST read, or would just like to chat about a book feel free to reach out here!

Books are one of my favourite gifts to give and receive. If you'd like to fund my reading from my Amazon Wishlist that would make me a happy man.
