Reading List 2018

Here is the list of books that I consumed in 2018. Audio books are noted. Otherwise, they are books that I read. Partially read books are not included on this list. (Sometimes I pick up a book and can’t complete it. It doesn’t mean that it isn’t valuable, it just means that I didn’t get to the last page.)

Some of these books (about 10%) are books that have I have read at least once before. There is value in the repetition of useful concepts.
