Eight books I read in 2016 and I recommend (plus two that I don't)

As the time of the year dictates, I am compiling a list of interesting books I read in the past 12 months. How do I define interesting? I consider books interesting if they somehow gave me either a new perspective or some nice moments of relaxation. I separated the recommendations based on categories, so that it is easier to follow, and wrote a short explanation of why I found each book worth sharing.

Turning a page at reading

After almost 2 years of internal fight between my love for book and my love for technology, the scale finally turned on the other side and I decided that it’s time to turn a page in my reading habits: I bought an ebook reader! I know that some of you might think of me as another book hater, who doesn’t appreciate the smell of old paper and the great feeling at the sound of turning pages, but there are good reasons behind such a choice.

Good reads

Recently I found out about a very nice service for keeping track of the books that you have read, while at the same time giving ratings, reviews and seeing what other people think about the books available out there. The service is called GoodReads and you can create an account for free. You can see my public profile here: www.goodreads.com/tassos Feel free to add me as a friend if you join the service.
