Currently reading


I read a lot (as you can see from my bookshelf!).

I want to better catalogue what I read, and also share the books that I find helpful and worth the time.

I’ve been making notes in Obsidian on the books that I read for as long as I can remember, and in the past I did have a list of all the books I had read, but lost it somewhere over the past few years.

Maybe if I can automate it somehow I can relaunch the list!
