Books that I might have to read

I used to have this habit of buying books and then not reading them. I vowed not to buy anymore, but to borrow from the library. The Woodbridge Library isnt that great; I sort of need to get books on an inter-library loan, especially some non-fictions ones. And I got into the habit of using coins collected in a bottle (my father says its about $75 worth when full) to order for books. There’s a childish pleasure in this that can’t be explained.

I plan to ask Smitha to get me some books too.

Here’s what I got:

Maverick: The Success Story Behind the World’s Most Unusual Workplace

(i lost a copy that I had, its out of print)

Breaking the Constraints to World-Class Performance

A New Kind of Science

Out of the Crisis

Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk

And what I want to get:

Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

(i tried reading this and it was a mighty tough read, which means i didnt read it)

The Pencil: A History of Design and Circumstance

The Soul Of A New Machine

The Making of the Atomic Bomb

Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time

We-think: The Power of Mass Creativity

Some of them were forwarded to me by Tom from this IEEE list.

So many books to not read . . .
