You can dual license it under CC BY-SA 4.0 and GPLv3 or later, which is
what I'd recommend.  CC BY-SA 4.0 is GPLv3 compatible, but not "or
later", and I think having an "or later" in anything GPL'ed is a good

For now I've updated legal notice so that now the book contains information about the CC BY-SA 4.0 license. Although I have nothing against applying the dual license, I used the "doclicense" LaTeX package to generate the information, and I don't know how to handle such use case. Maybe I will fight with that later, but I guess that the code snippets will sooner or later become a part of the repository that is already GPLv3+
I've loaded the book on my e-reader, look forward to reading it!

I hope you have a pleasant read! :)
