2023 Reading List

I've updated my 2023 reading list with the 105 books I read over the course of the year.

Highlights were The Future, by Naomi Alderman, Station Eternity by Mur Lafferty and Titanium Noir by Nick Harkaway

A history of early Lego and the first sets they produced. The first Lego I played with was 725-3 LEGO Samsonite Town Plan, which my grandparents had bought in 1961. This was from the era when Samsonite distributed Lego in the Americas and when bricks were still made from cellulose acetate, before the switch to ABS.
