Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Since 2016, I have been setting a goal to read 100 non-fiction books per year. I started documenting my progress on this blog during the COVID-19 pandemic. I strive daily to become a better version of myself, work on my strengths and weaknesses, gain insights from the brightest minds, be at the forefront of the latest trends and execute goals through lessons learned.

The 100 Books Reading Challenge 2022 is my most successful attempt thus far as I was able to read 114 books – Non-fiction (52), Biographies (38), and Reputiva (24).

I have been experimenting with the 100 Books Reading Challenge since 2016, and it has become one of my favourite thing to do yearly. I am always striving to become more self-aware, learn new things, understand the world better and become a better version of myself. I strive to read for 2-3 hours daily via my kindle, laptop, iPod and on my phone. I am not where I want to be but am not where I used to be.
