command in my Kindle Documents folder. If anything, it shows I’m a compulsive reader, preferring Nordic crime novels, cyberpunk sci-fi and historical and natural sciences non-fiction. I probably read ten more programming-oriented books in PDFs, which I’m not including here.

My favorites were novels by Don Winslow and Richard K. Morgan. I also read most of the essays by Miles Mathis, about which I’m still forming an opinion.
