📚 Read some books!

This is a squash of a bunch of exploratory commits. I’ve wanted to have a bookshelf of sorts on my website for quite a while. The tasks involved included

  • Gathering book reviews from Instagram
  • Gathering book reviews from Goodreads
  • Gathering book reviews from random Apple Notes
  • Building an index page (that was responsive at that!)
  • Building a show page for each book.

There’s refinements to be made in sharing books that don’t have a proper ISBN, indie published, etc. Also, it feels a bit virtue-signal’ish to be pointing to all the indie book websites, when in reality I’m still a person who buys books e-books on Kindle and real books on Amazon. I’m a work in process.
