The Principles of Beautiful Web Design Jason Beaird, James George, and Alex Walker 55 90 20211128 Web Design This is the first book I have read about Web Design, but it was interesting. This book is full of resources and the basics of design theories. I’m not an occupational web designer, but it gave me a grasp of designing websites.
How to Win Friends & influence People Dale Carnegie 80 50 20211114 self-help There was nothing new. I already apply these rules in this book as possible.
Soft Skills John Sonmez 85 65 20211101(?) Tips for Programmers not as bad as I thought
Design Patterns Gang of Four 60 90 20211101(?) Programming The contents are interesting. However, I have no idea when I can apply it daily. Maybe it will be helpful in the future?
Fluent Python Luciano Ramalho 60 90 20211003 Programming It was really hard to finish this book.
The Art of Readable Code Boswell & Foucher 85 70 20210605 Programming The last time I read this book was two years ago, and I completely forgot what’s inside. So I decided to reread this book. I guess the contents in this book are not new to ordinary programmers.

HTML&CSS design and build websites Jon Duckett 70 90 20210316 Web This book covers fundamental knowledge to practical tips. I believe it is good for a newbie web developer.
Flask Web Development Miguel Grinberg 70 100 20210222 Web Mr. Miguel Grinberg has a repository with concrete codes about this book on GitHub so that I can check if I go right. It’s cool.
Version Control with Git Jon Loeliger&Matthew McCullough 60 100 20210209 Technology for SWE Really helpful
Essential English Words for The TOEFL Test, Inc. 80 100 20210103 English Beneficial for catching up with native English speakers
Introducing GitHub Peter Bell & Brent Beer 95 70 20201224 Technology for SWE This book is perfect for a non-programmer who wants to know how software engineers in his/her company collaborate. However, there is nothing special for ordinary SWEs. If you are an entry-level programmer and entirely new to Git concepts, it is good to skim this book.
You Are a Badass Jen Sincero 70 35 20201219 Spirituality Nothing is objective. I’m not a religious person, so this book doesn’t look helpful to me. I know some types of people need and love this type of book. This book is just not for me.

12 Years a Slave Solomon Northup 95 90 20200716 History Very helpful for understanding actual slavery. This book is made into a movie, but the film really exaggerates the facts.
A Random Walk Down Wall Street 11th Burton G. Malkiel 65 90 20200518 Finance Bible of investment. You need to read this book before starting an investment, even though its contents are somewhat redundant.
Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert T. Kiyosaki 90 70 20200401 Finance & Spirituality Interesting, but consists of nothing
Programming in Haskell 2nd edition Graham Hutton 35 100 GAVE UP Computer Science Have to focus on Python or object-oriented programming for a living
problem solving with algorithms and data structures using python Bradley N. Miller, David L. Ranum 60 90 GAVE UP Computer Science I don’t want to solve all the problems on this book. Nice but dull
