My books’ list is split into three sections: technical, writing and fiction. It just seemed to make sense to do it that way.

Technical

This list is generally built around web design, WordPress and typography.

Writing

I’m sucked in every time I come across a review of a book about writing. It goes on my Amazon wish list and eventually finds its way here.

Fiction (with some fact thrown in)

A couple of years ago, I dumped every book I could remember reading into Goodreads. Then, after wasting a couple of hours, I decided Goodreads wasn’t for me. I’ve probably read more than a thousand books, so many are missing.

Some of these books, I read back when I was a teenager. More recently, I’ve been drawn to historical fiction, in particular the work of Conn Iggulden and Robyn Young. Another author I’ve seen a lot of lately is John Steinbeck. I read Of Mice and Men when I was in school, then didn’t pick up another of his books till last year. Then I couldn’t stop picking up his books. The Grapes of Wrathe is a masterpiece, but you probably already knew that.

Thanks to Sid O’Neill for sharing the code that makes it possible to produce a sortable read books list from a dropbox text file, just like this one.
