books: just a few.. and a lesson learned

A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines by Janna Levin, a Barnard Prof. An interesting short fictional account of the way Turing and Gödel’s lives paralleled and intertwined.

Two books by Robin Hobb which were supposed to be put aside for pesach reading. *sigh* I never learn. These were the first two in the Soldier Son Triology, Shaman’s Crossing and Forest Mage. Something was missing from these stories, but not enough that I wasn’t kept up late finishing book two last night.

Time Management for System Administrators by Thomas A Limoncelli. This is a book I had read online a while back and was reviewing for a new coworker (who doesn’t have my procrastination streak, I’m jealous). O’Reilly generally puts out good books and this one did not disappoint.

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot’s Guide to the Land of Knitting by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Right. Is this the book you came back for the review for? Well, go find a copy. If you ask me really really nicely I might let you borrow mine. Stephanie is brilliant and witty, but you already knew that. This is a nice, unique, and refreshing book to add to my shelf.

Ok, lesson learned. I did something kinda stupid in an attempt to woo a client and it’s come back to bite me. I’m hurt by it and hope that it’s just a complete misunderstanding (you should have seen this post prior to editing!). I have discovered quite a few problems still with the client’s website and would love to fix them so it makes me feel better than little things are still left undone. If that makes any sense.

  1. but what if we can’t find copies? ;_; I hope your client appreciates your work! And, as always, I’m amazed by how many books you manage to read!
