Since we see so many book covers and recommendations posted on social media, we guess we have time for reading and listening to audiobooks. So we thought it could be a good time to put suggestions from the ecosystem and collect a list of reads and audiobooks that would help the whole community grow and develop further. Each week we’ll be publishing three suggestions. Here are the selections for this week:
