This is a coverflow page of the books I read (or I am reading).

The data has been systematically collected since the end of 2012 (the data for earlier years is sketchy, with many gaps and little information about start and end dates).

The page is built from a YAML file which contains data about the books I read. This, together with ERB and Ruby code allows me to present it in different ways and compute various statistics.
