Friends, I’m back. My beloved WordPress, I missed you. I used Medium as my primary place to write and publish stuff since sometime in 2017.

One little trick that made me read more books

I’ve been procrastinating a lot about reading more books and I’ve found one little trick, that made me read books again. My daily dose of reading is consumed on Medium, some local online news sites, and social networks (bad). When I bought my Kindle a few years ago, I used to read one or two books...CONTINUE READING
