20 books from my degree worth reading

20 books from my degree worth readingAfter three years and countless reading lists, I thought I’d share 20 books from my degree worth reading. I read a considerable amount of the “classics” along with some obscure literature that no one has ever heard of mainly in the Anglo-Saxon textbook.

But there were also some absolute gems within those reading lists, that I would potentially never have found or not found for a long time.

These were the texts that stuck with me or really interested me over the course of my degree.
