Of all my goals and resolutions from 2018, few turned out as satisfying as my 2018 reading goals. Back in 2017, I only read 13 books and going into 2018, I made plans to read more of what I wanted, as fast I wanted.

In 2018 I was finally able to develop a technique for reading that allowed me to dive deeper into my love for history, technology, theology and biographies of many inspirational people in history.
