##Technical Books## I’m not sure how long technical books will be around in the age of online tutorials and stackoverflow, but I still enjoy having a book next to the keybaord while learning or rediscovering some piece of software. This year only three books were able cut the bar as completed.

##Warhammer40k Series## Keeping up with the “Horus Heresy” saga, while my MTA daily commute.

##Invited Author## Last year was the time of Isaac Asimov, this year I pick Philip K Dick.

##General reading## * How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big by Scott Adams. Don’t take it as a self-help book! * Small is Beautiful by E.F. Schumacher.
