A Quick Look at a Programmer's Bookshelf

my programming books
One of the best ways to get to know someone is to look at their bookshelf. -- Kathy Sierra
Here's a quick look at the programming section of the bookshelf next to my desk. It reflects my current interests pretty well:
  • algorithms, Knuth and Introduction to Algorithms
  • compilers, including the red and green dragon books
  • operating system development
  • artificial life
  • assembly language, books on 68000, 8086 and 6809
  • computer history, Hackers and Fire in the Valley
  • web development
What's on your bookshelf?

    Looking for a good math book, I did not finish highschool, and while somehow it fails incite regret in me, math is something I avoid (only in its pure forms really).

  2. Too bad that your history at the library doesn't show up in your bookshelf...
