Reading is something I have been loving from my childhood. I used to read anything and everything that I could find. Starting with the usual self motivation books I slowly graduated to books on management and now to books on a variety of topics.
I was quite lucky that where ever I went books were in abundance. My school, college and my first employer probably had the biggest collection of books. As luck would have it and to my liking, the first job I had required me to read a lot.
I am just trying to recollect how many books I might have read by now. Hopefully, I can also include a brief about them sometime soon. So here I go:

List to be updated …
I bet that list would be much longer in reality. Much better than me though. I’ve owned more books than I’ve read.
That is true akhil. I have put up the list of books published in English only. And I am sure I have forgot lot of books which I have read.
I am updating the list now.
It continues to grow, much to my frustration.
And BTW, it’s Harry Potter and the Deathly ‘Hollows’ not hallows.
I am impressed! I can understand your frustration and it is ‘Hallows’ and not Hollows.
