Welcome to Dan Becker's Other Hobbies, an area of my web site
for discussing various hobbies and projects.
I frequently spend my leisure pursuing strange ideas, investigating
crackpot schemes, or dreaming up ways to make my friends laugh.
Many of the ideas are presented here with the notion of making
others laugh too.
On the left side is a navigation menu for browsing the topics.
You are currently in the Dan Becker's Other Hobbies page.
Here is a brief description of the subsections:
- discussion of books and book reading lists.
