I like books and gadgets. Who doesn’t? When it comes to books, I read a lot but I also forget almost as much. So I decided to take notes. I took that decision years ago, but I never followed up on it. So in order to force myself to take notes, I will do this publicly. The main purpose of these notes is that I can go back and refresh my memory about what I read some time ago. And if these notes help you figure out whether you want to buy a book or not, so much the better.
Regarding the gadgets, I usually have a gut feeling about the gadgets I buy. And usually, I also wish to share that opinion. I will just dump my thoughts here so I won’t have to annoy my friends with stuff they don’t care about. Maybe someone cares.

The books list will grow in the foreseeable future. Here are some of the books that I am planning to cover:
