“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

I like remembering things :). So I keep track of what I eat using Cronometer and take notes about the books I read using Goodreads. Unlike book summaries or reviews these are just some interesting things that I learned which I would like to read again from time to time. I review all my notes yearly. I’ve lost notes of some of the other books that I’ve read.
