#29 Books That Make You Excited About the Future – Darren Campo

What positive themes do you like to read about? How about immortality? Life after death? Children overcoming obstacles and learning and growing? What about our animal friends? And that whole idea of nature vs. technology but for the good of humankind. Now that’s what I like to read, too!
