Reading List

I started a page to keep track of the books I read over the course of a year. Most, if not all, will get summaries and notes shared on this blog as well. For now, at least, a complete list of what I’ve read in 2018 is up.

I’ll backfill notes on some of the recent ones. In general I take notes alongside each chapter of a book. I plan to turn those into brief recaps.

Hello World

Welcome to Margins.

Why the name? I’ve always loved the margins of a good book. As a kid I doodled in them. In college I started using them to annotate and highlight the sections I wanted to remember. Margins are a way for me to keep track of the best bits I find. This is harder to do with digital texts.

My plan is to use this blog to keep track. To put edges around what I listen to, read, and learn. From articles to podcasts to book notes, I’ll compile what I learn and share it here. If you look through the archives of my personal blog you’ll find I used to use it in this way. I’m looking forward to doing that in an expanded way here, with a fresh slate and a great domain.

The format will be a bit of an experiment. Most posts will likely be short and book notes will likely be longer. I’m looking forward to it.

For now, stay tuned for more updates. You can subscribe to the RSS feed or sign up for what will be an occasional “best of” newsletter.
