A book a fortnight

I love reading books (physical books) when I was a kid. Everyday I would read a book (because we hardly have any social media or tech) to act as a substitute. As we grow older, we get more busy with life and tech. One of my weekly goal is to read 2 books a month, and this shouldn’t be to hard as I commute 2-3 hours a day on a bus to the CBD (return, not one way). Books are a great way to learn. Fiction or non fiction, it doesn’t matter.

I am currently reading “The hard things about hard things” by Ben Horowitz.

Here are some of my recommendation (a fraction of books in my library of collection):

2. Winning the brain game – Matthew May
