Last spring, I already wrote a note about the book marathon that the Pokupo platform holds among its employees. In 2019 the marathon did not start at the beginning of the year, so it became a sprint, but it did not change the essence. Each participant should have noted in the table a list of books he has read and the number of pages.
And what would you think. I won again :) I think I should retrain from programmers to librarians :)
Here is a list of books I read in 2019 (some books was in english, some in russian.), maybe someone will find here something useful for themselves:
- Vance “Elon Musk, Tesla, SpaceX”
- Satya Nadella. "Refresh the page"
- Paul Vigna, Michael J. Casey "The Age of Cryptocurrencies"
- Mark Goulston "Talking to 'Crazy'"
- Laszlo Bock "Work Rules"
- Paul Hill "The Viking Wars of Alfred the Great"
- Chekhov “Sakhalin Island”
- Bob Batchelor "Stan Lee: The Man behind Marvel"
- E. Kobelev “Ho Chi Minh”
- Norman Ohler "Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany"
- Shtekli "Dzhordano Bruno”
- A.Leeor “Earthship Chronicles”
- Maurice Bouvier “Atilla”
- Daniel Domscheit-Berg "Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website"
- Stephen Witt "How Music Got Free"
- KERAM K.V. "Gods, graves, scientists"
- Shulgin "Phenethylamines that I knew and loved"
- Midler "Poorly Made in China"
- Graham "Can Russia compete?"
- Primo Levi "The Periodic Table"
- Balkansky "Kim Il Sung"
- Guy Gugliotta, Jeff Leen "Kings of Cocaine"
- Sutherland “Scrum”

New year I started with Rex Weyler’s book "Greenpeace".
Now I have to keep the brand and win in the new reading marathon, even if I have to compete with myself.
I want to once again thank my colleagues from Pokupo and personally @ivelon for the competition and prizes. I love reading and it is very cool when your hobby brings, among other things, a material reward, especially when this material reward can be converted to new books.
