This is list of books and writings (including articles, papers and essays) that I recommend reading, in no particular order. A really helpful tool I like to use is Polar for papers and PDFs. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way.





Please help me find this!

These are books and writings I desperately want to read, but can’t find. I’d really appreciate it if you let me know where I’m able to stumble upon one or more of these!
