New challenges on the horizon

| Books | 0 Comments
Rumor has it that I've decided to become some kind of Linux expert. So who am I trying to kid?!

At least I was happy when I came home today and discovered the big box from Amazon lying on the cabinet in the hallway entrance.

New challenges on the horizon are:

  • Understanding the Linux Kernel by Bovet & Cesati
  • Linux Device Drivers by Corbet, Rubini and Kroah-Hartman
By the way, there was also a more "normal" book as part of the shipment, namely:

  • A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon
Two days ago I finished his first book called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time which I really liked.

On my way home yesterday, I stopped at the bookstore at the train station and purchased the following two paperbacks:

  • Love in the time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • Shadowplay by Tad Williams
When I realized I'd inadvertently bought book two I quickly went to and ordered book one:

  • Shadowmarch by Tad Williams
Am I getting overly addicted to buying books or what? No matter, I've got lots of time to read it all in the train, about two hours per day which is ten hours per week (or about one good novel a week).
