Book Review: The Frontier Saga

Today’s “book” review is “The Frontier Saga” series. The book is in quotes because I’m talking about all three books as one item. This is because I enjoy the series greatly, but more so due to my fascination with the “episodic books” concept that this series utilizes.

Book Review: Ready Player One 4

Book Review: Ready Player One

Since I’ve gotten onto my Arduino kick, I figured I should get some proper reading material on the subject. One of the first I saw was Getting Started with Arduino by Make: Magazine. Since “Getting Started” is exactly what I wanted and I rather like most of what Make does, I bought and read the book.
