Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

probaby the most interesting chapter: about Che Guevara's early life, when he was a medical student and visiting his friend Alberto Granado , who was working in a leprosy hospital in Argentina; soon after, they started traveling around South America, visiting leprosariums and trying to help people when possible. also some thoughts on pain and its function as a definer of self (you consist of what you can feel). she also talks about Buddhism and her own illness (potential breast cancer, for which she needs surgery)
