@MaxFenton's Box of Quotes

What is this? How does it work? Who made it?

  • These are the highlighted passages from the books I have read in Readmill, an app/service for open ebook reading.

  • The markdown files are generated by a service called boxofquotes by Javier Arce (twitter:@javier) Box of Quotes keeps track of my Readmill reading and updates flat markdown files in a private dropbox folder.

  • I reverse-publish / push / commit the changes B.o.Q. makes to that Dropbox folder from my local drive to GitHub.
