In between the frenzy of life’s daunting expectations is a world of calm through books where dreams are made, lessons are learned and an invigorated soul. Reading is my retreat in my quest for wisdom and compassion in a reality that is oftentimes maligned with subtle mediocrity and ceased by unwanted surges of the unforeseen.
Below is a list of reads I completed within 2014. I usually do not track my readings but have opted to do so for 2014. I am glad I did as it made me be more aware of my aim to diversify my reads.
Cheers to more reads this coming 2015.

*** The books on the photo did not make the list as I have read those years ago. Majority of the books on the list are now stored on my ipad. It has been quite revolutionary for me to finally embrace e-books as I have always preferred printed books because of the nostalgia and unexplainable pleasure it brings. But with storage woes and the ease of bringing tons of books (e-books) when travelling, I am getting the hang of it. Thank you to the wonders of technology.
