scramBled - Books

I love reading books. They're a great source of continuing education (something else I love), entertainment, and escape. I especially love my Kindle, which enables me to read without all the distractions of a phone (or the risk of paper-cuts!).

I wanted to start keeping track a couple years ago, and since I have a pretty lousy memory, I figured I should make some sort of notes or write reviews. I realized it would be incredibly painful to try to maintain it in one giant HTML page, so I broke my rules and made this into a database. The summaries pop up (using magical AJAX) when you click on a book title. Plus I found a cool table-sorting Javascript, so the tables are sortable and filterable.

They aren't super-in-depth book reviews or summaries; sometimes they're not even about the book much at all! It really depends on the mood I was in when I wrote the review. But anyway, enough of my babblings... onto the books!

2017 - Mid-spring here, and I haven't added any books since last October. I might try to do some catching-up, but perhaps not much reviewing
