What is this repository for?

I will be reading books about agile/scrum/kanban/lean, clean coding, and how to be a better developer. I will be writing "book reports" about what I learn from these books. I will post these books reports to my WordPress website as "10 Things I Learned from X".

This is my first repository in Bitbucket. I am also using the Book Reports to learn how to use Bitbucket as so far I have only used Github.

SInce I am drafting my book reports in markdown, it is also an opportunity to get more familiar with markdown.
