Have you ever noticed what is the thing most common in the most successful people in the world?
Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Imran Khan, Dan Pena, Jeff Bezos... all these leaders are good readers. They read several books a month. If you are already a reader that's well and good but if you are not, try to get started from now. Because a book is an extract of years of experience of its author. You can gain that giant amount of experience in a matter of hours. It is a good way to utilize free time too.
I personally love to read. There is no specific subject I read about but apart from my subject (computer science) I prefer to read about just personal development and history. However, I am trying to add more categories per year. There are arguments in favor of reading fiction but I would rather go for reading biographies. To avoid getting bored of reading, I do not read two consecutive books on the same subject. This is my personal opinion. Of course you can make your own flow.
Here is a list of the books I read in 2019. I will post a brief summary of each in coming weeks.
