Books I Read in 2018

Posted On: May 5, 2018

I had set the goal of reading 150 books in 2013; 200 in 2014, 2015 and 2016; 100 in 2017.

I ended up reading 152 books in 2013, 202 in 2014, 168 in 2015, 110 in 2016 and 80 in 2017. Though I fell short of reading 100 books in 2017, I intend to read at least 100 books 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, 2016 and 2017 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)
