Books

Welcome to the Books page! I reference a lot of books in this blog, so I decided to put together a page where you can find every book that has been referenced, along with the posts in which they are discussed. They are organized below by subject-matter.

The links are Amazon affiliate links. What this means is that if you buy a book through the links below you will pay the normal Amazon price and Amazon will send a small referral fee back to the blog, which will help us cover our hosting costs. Thanks for supporting us!

(I also will be in no way offended (and a little bit proud) if you check out the Amazon reviews and then pick up the book from your local library instead.)
