Books (and other sources) of 2016

read or listened to...

*A couple days ago I posted a table of contents of my own written work over the last year. However, I forgot to include the big picture bibliography! My inspiration does not just appear inside of a vacuum of isolation. Rather, it’s a merging of a couple existing ideas from other sources. I’ll admit, this last year’s schedule of commutes, travel, and transitions spaces allowed for more reading time than usual. However, I also listen to audiobooks in department stores, and I frequently fall behind on social media/ pop culture.

Learning, reading, and source sharing are some of my favorite ways to connect with others—feel free to leave a comment below!
