A Monthly Book Review Publication

Januay 5, 2020 By Shema Bukhari


The list is not as long as some of the books were from the past that I never completed. But at least I completed some unfinished books.

The one thing that increased my efficiency this year, was reading in digital formats on the phone or kindle. Somehow reading in digital formats has taken away some stress – for a book reader it shouldn’t be counted as stress – but nonetheless, the stress of getting up, reaching to shelf for a book, bookmarks, forgetting it at home and the list goes on.

I know these are very insignificant irritations but digital formats have helped me to read anywhere and anytime. Literally Anywhere.
