My year in books – the 68 books I read in 2017

Every year, I set myself a challenge to read at least one Book a month. I prefer business, science and technology reads but I have also found time for comedy and sci-fi.

In order to read as much as possible, I normally listen to audiobooks during my commute and on my travels.

A few favourites from this year: (full list below)

Every book I’ve ever read can be found in my library.
