Book Day: the best technology books
On the occasion of Book Day, which has been celebrated every April 23 since 1995 in honor of Cervantes and Shakespeare, we offer you a recommendation of books on technology.
Every April 23 we celebrate the Day of the book, a perfect time to discover new authors, titles and attract readers. The origin of the celebration is due to the UNESCO, when at the 1995 General Conference held in Paris decided to pay tribute to the day that two great authors died: Cervantes and Shakespeare.
In this way, technology is used to encourage readingand as an example, the rise of electronic books that have facilitated the reading of any work from a portable device with the capacity to store a multitude of titles.
From SamaGame.com we want to make a collection of the best technology and science books for you to enjoy this day.
