* These books were started in previous years but finished in 2016.

 I made a conscious effort this year to read more.

I am still having fallow weeks of not reading a single page interspersed with weeks in which I devour more than three hundred pages and will need to discipline myself to be more consistent next year.

Being more into audio books for last two years, I switched back to ebooks at the start of this year.

Among these books, Les Misérables is one book which is going to stay with me forever. These quotes and reviews will give you a flavor of it.
