Top 9 of 2019 (BOOKS)

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

For the past 2 years I've shared my top 9 books, instead of photos from instagram, for the new year. I'm continuing that tradition this year; posted below are my TOP 9 in 2019!


#9 Other Minds

Not about paddling, athletes. It's all about the lovable Octopus. With my background and Master's degree in Marine Biology, I like to read at least one book involving that subject each year. The more I try and understand human cognition from a self-improvement point of view, the more I don't understand. I want to understand why humans are able to change, or not, and I thought looking into other animals that are self-aware may shed some light on the subject. It didn't really, but I love the Octopus more now.
