366 paper challenge

UPDATE: Haven’t abandoned reading but for a deeper understanding reading few papers. Will update once again soon.

With some motivation and inspiration from my fellow tweeters Rhiannon MorrisDr. Natalie MatosinDr. Martin Engel and Tabitha I also joined the 366 paper challenge. The challenge is simple, just read one paper daily and if possible post it. This helps in keeping up with reading and having a habit of reading.

I started on 30th of January so, I have already missed 29 days of reading but I hope I will be able to keep up the pace with others.
