I am definitely not a Book worm but I do read for leisure..
5 years in HCI i had read numerous books. After reading, sometimes I gave the book to friends or colleagues, but majority I gave them to library..
I cant recall what I had read but....
I have compiled a list of books which I had read in 2012 and I will update once I have completed another book.
