Books

This database is especially useful for me: keeping log of books I've read is a good knowledge management tool. If you think it might be useful to you too, help yourself :)

I try to read as much as I can. In general, I prefer reading essays than novels, but it doen't mean you can't find any novels reviews here.

If you disagree with my view on a book, or would like to exchange opinion, as always feel free to contact me!
