I’ve collected some of the blog entries I liked the most from the previous years, formatted them, did a little cleanup work, put them into PDF, MOBI, and EPUB formats, and made them available to download for free right here. You can do what you want with the file from there.
If there are any problems, let me know.
(I’ve highlighted my favorite entries in italics.)
To download, click on the link and it will take you my Google Documents where you can download that version of the file.
