Books, Reading And Me

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:
