I remember voraciously consuming every book I could get my hands on as a child. Somewhere between my time at Exeter and Stanford, I admittedly lost some of that appetite to a buffet of dry, chalky required reading assignments. While I still read for leisure, it was never as much as I would have liked.

With formal education behind me (for the time being), that childhood hunger has returned. Now as a professional athlete with an overabundance of bus rides, airport layovers, and empty afternoons, I have not only rediscovered my love for reading, but more importantly realized I never want to stop learning.

Here are some books I have stumbled upon, been recommended, or simply wanted to (re)read. The list dates back to the last books I remember reading during the 2012-2013 season.
