Alex’s Ultimate Pre-Law School Reading List

In lieu of the more conventional blog post, I’m going to list everything I read this summer. The perfect blend of fiction (for those who want to escape reality) and nonfiction (for those who want to jump back in). And yes, I’m well aware this doesn’t follow Chicago-style formatting.
