Reading non-fiction books is a great source of learning and constant self-improvement. I like books on economic theories, technical topics, and entrepreneur-related content. This page is a timeline of all the books that I read. Some books may not have been fully read though, eg. technical books, as they rather serve an always-available knowledge backup purpose.
