I’m Erik DeBill. I’m a programmer from Austin, TX who spends quite a bit of his free time reading. I also blog technically at Erik’s Engineering.

I’m writing reviews in hopes of both drawing attention to some of the excellent books I read and deepening my enjoyment of them. I suspect that if I’m better at talking about them, I’ll enjoy reading them more.

As someone who used to go through the pain of culling his book collection once every year or two when it got too big to keep, I always preferred paperbacks, not just for price but for practicality. These days it’s hard to get me to read a book on paper. I read on a wide variety of Kindle, Kobo, Android and iOS devices. They all have their pros and cons and I’m a big believer in using the right tool for the job.
