Recent Books

This is my recent book log. I read many technical books (not listed). I read a few of the books listed below and listened to the rest. I make a point of listening to books only when I can really focus on them (e.g. during long roadtrips, during simple home projects, etc.). Books that were enjoyed multiple times only appear once. For example, I listened to Foundation before the prequels, then listened again.
