This page exists for recollection and motivation. I purchased
an e-reader in the fall of 2020, and I'm using this page to track/remember
what I've read on the device and to motivate me to keep reading. The motivation part is important. I went a long time
without reading non-specific-work stuff, and I don't want to revert to
being like that. It's been truly rejuvenating, personally and
professionally, to read broadly again.
I'll also probably add works here that I read in print, since most of
what I'll read in print I'll check out from the library, and this list will
help me remember that I read those books, too.
