3 Books You Need To Read in 2018

If ya’ll haven’t noticed by now, I’m obsessed with reading. I take my books with me everywhere. Work, the gym, the breakfast table, long car rides, and most favorably — my bed. For me, reading is a form of meditation. It’s one of the only times I feel disconnect from the world and wholly connected…
