  3. The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression
  4. Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood
  5. The Stranger
  6. Guide to Managerial Communication: Effective Business Writing and Speaking
  7. Notebooks of the Mind : Explorations of Thinking
  8. Shape Up: Stop Running in Circles and Ship Work that Matters
  9. Lord of the Flies
  10. How to Win Friends and Influence People
  11. On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction
  12. The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers
  13. Causation: A Very Short Introduction
  14. Man's Search for Meaning

Very dull year overall, both in terms of how much I read and how many concepts I was able to explore. I am targeting my best for the next year, it's been around 2 years of slump.
