Books I read in 2017

Posted On: January 5, 2017

I had set the goal of reading 150 back in 2013, 200 in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

I ended up reading 152 books in 2013, 202 in 2014, 168 in 2015, and 110 in 2016. Though I fell short of reading 200 books in 2016, I intend to read at least 100 books (halved from last year) this year!

Subscribe to my enewsletters here so as to be informed at the end of the year if I achieve this goal!

In the meantime, check out the list of books I read in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 here.

As per previous years, I’m sorting them into five categories:

  • Fun (completely random books I picked up or the sort of thing I read to pass time);
  • Spirituality (what I am into it but actually also fun for me);
  • Work (not necessarily related to my field but along the lines of business e.g. marketing, customer service, productivity etc);
  • Sexuality (I have added this label so you know this book is primarily about sexuality);
  • Relationship (self explanatory)
