Books in 2016

Tue 06 December 2016

A better part of 2016 was spent reading books. This obsession took shape from the company of people who liked to read, in a country where there was nothing much I could do offline without getting overwhelmed; nor could I wander around online without ultra-slow-vpns (aka China). One goal for 2016 was to finish reading atleast 25 book and I managed to reach it. A major chunk was filled by Sci-Fi.
