My 2020 Reading List

I loved reading when I was a kid; I spent all my allowances and most of my free time reading books and magazines; it was my hobby, my escape and my way of staying sane. As I became older, I read less and less until I stopped reading anything except for college books and technical references.

Reading helped me relax by allowing me to disconnect and drift into a unique world, be it a historical story or an endless flow of Arabic poems, reading helped me a lot and so I have been trying to read again. I will take some time before I get back to my old habits, but I will get there.

If you are looking for something to read, This post lists the books I will read this year. Monitor it as I will definitely add more books and some personal ratings.

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
Charles W. Eliot
