My 2023 Reading List

My 2023 Reading List

Motivation and Selection

2022 was a really tough year so I read only 11 books 😞

This year (2023) I decided to create a reading plan in advance and track my progress every week.

This list includes nonfiction, sci-fi, classics, and tech books. All of them were recommended by my friends or other great people. Some of these books I've already read but I want to re-read them for better understanding concepts and ideas that stay behind them.

It is a dynamic and unsorted list. It can be changed during the year but it should help me to keep the reading pace at least (or I hope so 😄).
