I wanted to list here the books I have read (or am currently reading) in the time since I have undertaken this project, in order to give readers a glimpse into where some of my ideas and insights come from. In addition I have listed those currently on my bookshelf – in the queue – without all of the bibliographic information. I will also use this as my “References” page for my blogs.
