Best Books of 20152015 passed away faster than I could have imagined. There was so much to keep me occupied that it was only when I saw the beginning of December that I sat back to see all that I had done in this year.

It was a year when some accolades came my way like earlier in the year I was given Digital Innovator of the year award and towards the end I received ‘Best Digital Content’ award from SheThePeople TV and Axis Bank. It was a year when I spoke at lot of conferences like

Startup Capitals Conference at Delhi & Bangalore

Gurgaon Story, Gurgaon

Lit Fest X – India’s first online Literature Festival

Goa Arts & Literature Festival, Goa

National Innovation Summit, Mumbai

Launched Paula Constant’s books at Pune

I focused a lot more on my travel blog – IndiTales and hence the activity level on AnuReviews went down a bit, but I hope to bring it back in 2016. I also started writing a travel column ‘ Stories from the Road’ in Navhind Times newspaper.

I read quite a few books on my Kindle and I often found myself missing its features while reading my real books – like instant dictionary to know the meaning of a new word or ability to mark the sections without really spoiling the book. This year I also read lot of authors that I had read earlier, which is not what I usually do.

So here are my list of Best Books of 2015.
