Book Summaries

The two things I hated in high-school were reading books and writing. That constitutes the bulk of what I do today. 

I started reading books back on December 20th, 2016 by reading at least 20 pages of a book a day. I created a simple habit reading tracker and slowly, but surely, started my journey.

A year later, I was 47 books richer. Three years passed and I read 126 books. I did all of that by using my simple habit reading tracker. It was so effective that my friends started using the tracker and it had the same effect on them. That’s when I realized I created something useful not just for me, but for everyone else.

All book summaries that you’re about to read are the fruit of a simple, 20-page-a-day, reading system.
