BOOKS

Less music, more words?

I’ll continue to work on this list, prepared just for you, your moms, and all y’all. Please do share in the comments if you have your own thoughts on books relating to matters of being in time and space. Especially if you read one of these cranium-rattling books and have thoughts on them! I’d genuinely love to hear.
