I have set myself a target of 20 books in the 20 weeks that I am in the US. This post will become a repeat update with each passing book and week

So far, the books read are

  1. Dare to Run by Amit Sheth
  2. Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
  3. When Genius Fails by Roger Lowenstein
  4. Moneyball by Michael Lewis

And it is just a day over 2 weeks since I landed. As they say, good things come to those who wait.

Other books being read at this point are
