Thanks to Prentice Hall and Addison-Weseley giving me three new books, my reading list has bulked back up. Here's what I'm working through at the moment:
- The Freebies
- UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook (4th Edition) — I'm really excited about this one, I've loved the first three editions, and this looks like a really solid revamping of a classic in the Sys Admin field.
- The D Programming Language — I'd like to see how well D stacks up to C and C++ (though I've got pretty minimal chops with either).
- Distributed Programming with Ruby — another Ruby Book? I've always got room for one of those.
- Three More I'm Working On.
- The Little MLer — I'm tired of waiting for a good OCaml book, and this looks like the best option for getting up to speed in the ML world.
- Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing — yeah, besides languages and communities, I like to hack food. I've had a couple of goes (each) at jerky, bacon, and sausage. Now, it's time to take a step up to the big leagues.
- 52 Loaves: One Man's Relentless Pursuit of Truth, Meaning, and a Perfect Crust — Another fun food book.
