My Reading List

For years now, I have been keeping a running list of books that I have read. (I don’t read nearly as much as I should or want to) I have always kept a txt file around with the books I have read, usually local on my main machine somewhere. I was doing some research on another project and stumbled upon a shortcode script on GitHub that parses a text file and displays it on a page. So the following list is auto generated from a txt file that I have shared out from DropBox. The script has some smarts in it that color codes books, based on the mark-ups I assigned to it.

Green indicates I’m currently reading it, Blue indicates my favorites, Cayenne indicates I read the Kindle version, Orange indicates I listened to the audio book
