Book reading list 2021

Dec 31, 2020

In 2021 I plan to read a bunch of books. Mainly on programming and python so I can progress a bunch in my career and earn more money. I don’t really read a lot of fiction, previous years I have only read the Jack Reacher series and some George Orwell books(Animal Farm and 1984).

Some of the books I have already read but they are among my favorites and I learn something new every time I read them again. They will be a bit lower on my list as I am not sure if I can read all 37 books this year. The programming ones do take more time as I will do the exercises in them as well.

When reading a book I will also write a review for them. You can visit those whenever a link is added to this list.
