Didi’s Reading List 📚🤓

This is my reading list - a list of books which I recently read, I am currently reading, or plan to read shortly. I am most interested in technical and business books. I recently purchased a Kindle Paperwhite and use Calibre to convert epubs or pdfs to Kindle’s internal mobi format, when needed. If you have any book tips, let me know.
