— Reading is good for you

I like to read, and there’s something special about reading a book.

Compared to reading on a screen that is. Even if the screens are really good today, there is still something about reading on paper that I like more.

I do read fiction from time to time, but I also really enjoy reading books that go under the popular science genre. Books about business, logic, people, and technology in general. Think about it like this, if it could be a cover story in Wired Magazine it probably fits the genre.

I’m also a big fan of reading books about everything related to web technology. Below is an updated list of some of the books that I’ve read lately, it’s the ones I think is good enough to recommend to others.
