Books

You can find the books I will read in 2021 below. Also, these are the books which Bill Gates read and recommended. Furthermore, I am planning to have a smilar challenge each year, and I will share the books in here which I decided to read.

60 books a year is hard to achieve but still reasonable. If I fail, I will announce it via all TV and Radio channels. Just kidding.
