I am a Torah reader. I am always interested in learning about the nuances of how trope is used as well as the rules about how the Torah scroll is written, and the relationship between the writing activity and reading / chanting.
In various questions here, as well as speaking to a few people, two books have been mentioned קסת הסופר and מנחת שי. I forgot what each book delves into and what the differences are with these two works. Please describe / summarize.
