Inspired by Tom MacWright's self-hosted book reviews as an alternative to GoodReads. This page contains brief reviews as a way to record my thoughts and reflect on an activity that has been a trusted companion to me for much of my life.
The book reviews here begin in April of 2022 when I began to read fiction again regularly after a long time away caused by a combination of overwork and the attention-span-killing trap of smart phones. There will be very little or nothing here about software engineering.
A bonus for me in creating this page is that if I lose my reading habit again, visiting here and seeing big gaps without a review may shame me into putting my phone away, letting work go in the evenings, and picking up a book. Perhaps you'll find something interesting to read here, or use this as inspiration to start your own place to share book reviews with the world.
