I tried reading a few books and then purchase the other books but, I couldn't read it that way. This year, I also tried reading multiple books at once. I didn't enjoy it as much as I read a book at a time. Will go back to one book at a time. 

Of all the books, I enjoyed Summerhill by A.S.Neil for changing my perspectives on education.
