Personal notesโ€‹

  • I don't have preference about books vs e-books, I love both formats for different things
    • Paper books look nice on the shelf
    • Kindle is magnitudes more lightweight than all the books it can store
  • I read in English or in Polish
    • English strongly preferred even though I need more time and focus to read English books
    • Polish translations are sometimes of mixed quality
  • I strongly prefer non-fiction over fiction
    • I no longer read as much fiction as used to in 2000s
  • I prefer science-fiction over fantasy
    • I find fantasy and medieval stories generally boring
    • science fiction deals with aspects of reality that MAY happen someday in the future. It's a nice thought exercise
  • I like biographies
  • I like well-researched guides and essays
  • with certain exceptions, I don't believe in books as medium for learning technical stuff
    • for certain areas technology moves too fast for books to stay relevant
