As a recent book fan, I am joining the Goodreads reading challenge. I set a goal of 100 books for myself. That is roughly 1 book per 4 days! I have many books in my to read list. I have a habit of downloading a book and not reading it because sometimes I am impulsive and keep searching for new books. I think this is similar to impulsive book shopping.
This list is interesting. It gives you a balanced check list of books to read from different genres.
If you are like me, reading from the desktop, or you have a e-reader, you may wish to find free ebooks online. There are mostly illegal ways, if you know the ways to get them. My favourite places to download free ebooks are Bookzz, Bookfi, and Thepiratebay. For Thepiratebay, you need a program called utorrent to download the books. Google it. For specialised IT books, you may want to visit it-ebooks.info.
