Cogito, ergo sum
- René Descartes

This is a list of books either I have read, I am currently reading, or I plan to read in the near future. If you happen to be reading any one of these books and would like to have a discussion about it with me, you may find the way to contact me here.

My goal of reading is thinking. I treat the reading process as the way to sharp my mind. I believe the more I utilize my brain, the quicker it reacts.

Right now, I do not have much time to read, but I intend to read a little bit every single day either before going to bed or when I am too tired of work. I always want to read more.
