List of gifted books

Hey, I'm Felix, a 13 year old programmer who produces large amounts of side projects. I'm currently working with Repl.it on a mobile app 😛

On the side, I'm interested in physics, and I've been playing the cello for 8 years! I'm looking to get into cyber security and I welcome any books about that.

I love reading science fiction and books about design and software architecture. I'm also a huge Terry Pratchett fan, and I've read every Discworld book. My favorite books to date are...

  • Life in Code by Ellen Ullman
  • Atomic Design by Brad Frost
  • Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
  • How To by Randall Monroe (how can I not love it)
  • Permanent Record by Edward Snowden

You can buy books for Felix from their wishlist below, or pick another book yourself.

Frontend Architecture for Design Systems

Micah Godbolt

This is a book about design systems in code that I've been meaning to read for a while! I'm super interested in exploring topics like this.

Practical Malware Analysis

Michael Sikorski, Andrew Honig

I run a Discord-based community that has a lot of people interested in the topic of malware analysis and security. I'm looking to learn more about this.

Social Engineering

Christopher Hadnagy

I gotta be honest, I stole this book idea from Miguel Piedrafita - but I've seen it around and I've been interested in this "other" side of hacking for a while.

The Annotated Turing

Charles Petzold

Turns out read.gift is also a great platform for discovering new books. Someone gifted this to Amjad (the CEO of Repl.it), and it really seems like something I would want to read.

The Difference Engine

William Gibson

This is a book a bunch of people have recommended to me, most recently my dad. It's playing on the politics and plot of an alternate history where essentially computers are powered by steam. And that's just the start of the awesomeness :P

Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

I LOVED Fall, and I've been meaning to read its brother Snow Crash. It's another amazing piece of writing that intersects tech, religion, politics, and more.
