3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. (Proverbs 24)

#So I’ve been gathering (by this I mean keeping track with my Google Keep App) a number of books I’d really love to read, have read, or was reading and it kept expanding. But I never really thought of compiling a reading list nor putting up an article about it.

So this article cannot proceed without me, giving a massive shout-out to the amazing individual that absolutely inspired me to do this. So once again, thank you very much Iyanu Gabriel for the inspiration. You’re a remarkable young man, passionately curious and it’s a privilege to be connected to you. You should connect with him and also check out his own reading list for 2022. (Medd stuff! Brace up for impact!)
