Index of Select Readings

When I read a good article, I post it on social media. Afterwards, it becomes lost in time. While I have gained knowledge from reading it, it slowly fades away as the months wear on. All too often, I am writing an article or engaging in a debate, and I think, “Only if I had that article to reference to…”This index is a result of wanting to document the superb content I come across, for both myself and people looking to delve deeper into certain topics. What I have selected is biased to my own views, yet I do not wholly agree with everything I put on this list. Anything in bold is what I have personally written.
