A list of the books I read and am currently reading.
My main reading goal is to avoid the daily and live news, focusing instead on the many books I bought. I’ve been trying to go through my library with varying results, mainly disappointing, until the beginning of this year. Here is a list of what I read and what I’m reading now. The record started at the beginning of 2023, and the post will be constantly updated.
