After all the writing recently, I decided to award myself a treat, so I moved some of the books from my wish list into the Amazon basket and ordered.. To feel less guilty about my shopping spree, I also added Cormen’s “Introduction to algorithms” book, that I had in college (in Romanian) but lost it.
Today 4 of the 5 books arrived .. I hope to get the algorithms book tomorrow 🙂
- Haruki Murakami’s “What I talk about when I talk about running” – to motivate me for the long runs to come in the half-marathon training plan. It was on my wish list for a while .. found it while browsing randomly through books on Amz, but then a colleague recommended it so I decided to get it.
- Michael Lopp’s “Being Geek” – instantly decided to buy his books after reading one of his blog posts .. unfortunately “Managing Geeks” was only available from some sellers that had really high delivery rates, so I got this one only.
- Ben Goldacre’s “Bad Science” – impulse buying no.1 .. hopefully will be an interesting read
- Leonard Mlodinow’s “The Drunkard’s Walk” – impulse buying no.2 .. same hope as for impulse buying no.1
Cormen’s book should compensate all that .. easy reading 🙂
