Sci fi reading list

tHIS SHIT is bananas

Reading is the easiest way to time travel and explore alternate states of reality and universes with different rules and norms. Over the last few years, I've enjoyed reading 30 to 40 books per year and getting into these alternate universes. Let me know what I'm missing! Always looking for some good mind benders.‚Äč
