I have had a lifelong love of reading. I read constantly and have a personal library of approximately 500 books on investing/history/biographies. My favorite book is April 1865: The Month That Saved America, by Jay Winik. It describes the period just before/just after the Confederate surrender at Appomattox and paints a picture of what the country could have become, in both positive and negative ways, but didn’t based on the events of that month.
