I Love Reading

This section of my website contains notes on books I have read. I am sharing the notes I made while reading. I hope you enjoy them.

I own a lot of books. Last year I decided to catalogue and organize them using the Dewey Decimal System. So far, there are 949 catalogued and labelled books.

One of the reasons I have so many books is for my kids. I love surprising my kids with new finds I have plucked from my shelves. Over the years, I have searched out and acquired many of my favourite books I read as a child. Of course, we have a great selection of lego books. My favourites are by Sean Kenney.

I have also collected a lot of books. GoodReads is an excellent service, and I like its API integration. Plus, the iOS app is excellent - I can scan the barcodes of my books and easily add them to my collections.

My favourite places to find books are the library and second-hand stores. I often visited the Goodwill annual book sale, finding treasures such as Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar from 1903. I have seen the strand in New York and bought so many books I could barely close my suitcases.

In addition to kids' books, I have a nice collection of books on 17th century England. My favourite books are those that discuss nature. I enjoy the writings of Michael Pollan. I recently discovered books by Diana Beresford-Kroeger; her ideas for bio planning and creating ecologically valuable gardens are fascinating and worth reading.

I also highly recommend Safari Online books. I have a subscription to this fantastic service to read the latest and best tech books.
