My 2017 Reading List


Here is my 2017 reading list. . Also, I've decided to start using Goodreads more consistently in my effort to read more!
Some of the books (the ones marked with *) are taken from Scott Adams' "Persuasion Reading List". The reason why I'm adding them is that I think it's good to be a little bit more aware of what happens around us.
Some others (the ones with two **) were recommended by my good friend Oleg Belousov.
