Reading

Since I’ve met my best friend and web design partner, who was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, I’ve become extremely interested in the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s, so you’ll see alot of those kinds of books on this page, along with books on web design, and my recent Kindle App finds.  I particularly like Ben Rehder’s Blanco County Mysteries series, Mark Gimenez’s legal thrillers, and R.E. Donald’s Hunter Rayne Highway Mysteries series.
