    A bit of a challenge for myself this year, typically I read aprox 20/25 a year so nothing special there, thought 50 would be too much so setting the bar at 40!, My interests are usually non fiction - psychology, economics , business, a little sport but also expect a few novels and a bit of poetry too.

    First book read "When Breath Becomes Air" Paul Kalanithi.

    36 year old neurosurgeon gets terminal cancer, a look back at his life, education and some fascinating insights into the world of neurosurgery and neuroscience as well as coping with a terminal illness.

    Amazing book, would recommend to everyone.
