My love for books
I have a special place in my heart for books; I treasure them. I cannot imagine living my life without reading books; it is just something I have always been doing almost every day — I can't help but reading! I hold special piles of books on different topics — such as database management, philosophy, mathematics, physics, and cryptography. What's more, I hold almost a bit more than two hundred books in my personal library at home; I am convinced this number will increase in the coming years. So, I call myself a book lover. Fair enough?

I started buying some of these books when I was in England in 2016, then I carried on buying the rest of them while doing my Master at Loughborough University in 2018. You're not going to believe this! — I bought almost one hundred books at that time – Yes, I know, I just got carried away; I do love reading paper books and therefore being in England for me was a golden opportunity to let my passion fly! I cannot regret that moment now; I still love the idea of buying more books in the foreseeable future. It is just so exciting to live among lots of books! — can you believe it?

My favourite book is Alan Turing: The Enigma, while my favourite author is Bruce Schneier, whose books are completely engrossing — I did read them all — which are highly recommendable for those of you interested in computer security, cryptography, code-breaking, and security issues. 
What makes me is my persistence to live my best life ever. Keep believing in myself. Going within when needed. Not looking the outer world, but my inner power.
