How I Build This Page

I keep a spreadsheet of the books I read each year and I get the JSON of that spreadsheet and dump it into the _data directory in the code for this site which is built on Eleventy. That data is then used most easily (thanks, Eleventy!) to populate this page. The code is on GitHub.
