Read

 It has become very fashionable amongst the #hustle people in the technology world to brag about the sheer quantity of books one consumes in a year, but my passion for reading predates this trend.

I have included here some of the best things I’ve read in the past year, not including ‘classics’ that make these kinds of lists all-too often.
