I love books. I love them so much that they're overflowing off the shelves and all over the floor. Here's a few of the books on the floor.

  • Colour of Magic--First American edition. Found at the Berkeley library store for a buck, and eagerly snatched up. And when Pterry was in Berkeley for a booksigning, that book got brought along, and now it sports Pterry's autograph. :)
  • An Unquiet Mind--"Unlike attendance at classes---which seemed stifling and, like the rest of the world's schedules, based on an assumption of steadiness and consistency in moods and performance--the research life allowed an independence and flexibility of schedule that I found exhilerating." This wonderful book, by Kay Redfield Jamison, is one of the best books I found for understanding my illness, and what it means. And since my undergrad transcript has a couple of frozen I's (no failing grades, though, I somehow never managed to get a grade worse than a C+)...well, you see how the quote fits.
  • The Callahan's Chronicles--First three books of the Callahan's series, and a damned good read.
  • The GNU Debugger--From my first failed attempt to learn C. Still wrapped up, but I'll prolly unwrap it and stick it on the tech shelf...

And that's just some of my books on the floor Hope you liked this look.
