My Favorite Books

In the summer of 2014, I challenged myself to read a book every single day. I successfully read 93 books in 90 days and it was without a doubt one of the highest personal growth periods in my life. Ever since then, I’ve tried to read and learn as much as I can.

I now store all highlights in Notion. You can view them here.
