Virtual Library

Welcome to my virtual library. Here you will find a number of books I own or have read, along with any review or relevant comments I may have made about the book in one of my posts. If you are interested, you can purchase the book at by clicking on it. I earn a small commission off all sales generated this way which does not increase the price you pay at checkout.

If you like what I write, maybe you’ll think about buying some of these books through my links. There’s nothing like educating yourself while you enrich others!

If you don’t like what I write, make sure you don’t click through my links and then buy the books or else you’ll end up making me some money. Funding your enemies is awfully foolish.
