I just bought a whole heap of old patterns books for not a lot by buying 2nd hand. It means they won't be on my kindle, but at a tenth of the price I can live with that 😹 - plus it's nice to read papery things again.
@fjfish I too love reading hard-copies over soft-copies. What books did you buy btw? I got hold of 3 books related to patterns recently but haven't had chance to go over them. The books that I got were: Design patterns(by the gangs of four), Design patters in Ruby, and The Rails 5 way.
