— Reading is good for you

Books

I like to read, and there’s something special about reading a book that’s hard to beat compared to reading on a screen.

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 a list of some of the books that I’ve read lately, it’s the ones I think is good enough to recommend to others.
