My Lending Library

These are all books I have available for my clients to borrow. I know there are so many options and you don't actually have time to read every book, so I've bolded my favorites in each section. These are a good place to start.

If there's a book you've heard of that you'd like to borrow that I don't have yet, please let me know so I can expand my library!
