From time to time, I need to “restock” my book shelfs, e.g. order a batch of Computer Science-related books from Amazon.
I placed a new order on Thursday and hopefully I’ll get them all during the week to come.
So, if the math’s correct, that’ll be 1857 pages of fun to get through this summer :-)
A few days ago, Gøran Hansen of Capgemini and a an active member of the Norwegian Microsoft scene – as well as active in the Twittersphere, wrote a blog post called “A Software Craftsman’s Bookshelf” containing a picture of his book shelf with Software Development-related books, as well as a brief review of the titles. He tagged a bunch of other people – including me, so here’s my contribution to this book shelf meme
(I actually wonder why a UI-geek like Gøran chose a dull jpeg for visualizing his book shelf, so I’m stepping up – to show off that Mr. Non-UI guy can use the Stitch functionality in Deep Zoom Composer. The final product is hosted on DeepZoomPix – a Microsoft site for hosting Deep Zoom pictures.)
(A click on the image will bring you to the real Deep Zoom image)
I actually thought about rotating the stitched picture counter-clockwise, so that the titles of the books would be easier to read, but I postphoned it to a moment when I have more time to stuff like this :-)
A description of the books + Amazon links, as well as a list of people I’d like to tag will be added later.
If Amazon’s estimate is correct, I will have them in my mail box by September 15th. I already have some other titles by Robert C. Martin, and hopefully these two titles is just as good. Release It! … was added to the shopping basket as a result of a review I read in a blog post that I’ve already have forgot the origin of.
