q_skud_ has an interesting book meme going on.

3 books you use most often for reference: Bovet and Cesati’s Understanding the Linux Kernel, W. R. Stevens’s Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment, and google, because while not a book, I use it for reference far more than I use any book…

3 books you read on “high rotation”: Stephen King’s It, Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon, anything by W. E. B. Griffin (yummy brain candy).

3 books you read for comfort: Stephen King’s It (knowing which character I always identify with shouldn’t be too difficult), Jeffery Archer’s The Prodigal Daughter and James Clavell’s Shogun (I guess I’m weird).

3 books you really ought to read: oh, but there are so many. Let’s see, just looking at my amazon wishlist, anything by Knuth, but especially his Art of Computer Programming (I’ve read bits and pieces, I should read all of it AND do the excersizes), Feynman’s Lectures on Physics, and the complete works of Shakespeare…

3 books you will never read: there are far too many to mention. Not because I don’t want to, but because there are not enough hours in the day.

  1. WEB Griffin a brain candy??
    Why is Griffin related to brain? AFAIK it’s a common Grisham/King/Colin kind of stuff – a cheap thriller with little brain involved.
    On the contrary Knuth’s AOCP is a real brain-trainer…

      brain candy in my usage == sweet, delicious, and requires no effort to munch upon 🙂
