I need to start reading some more books to get my brain over it’s current hump… (sorry, butÂ MPLS Fundamentals, while interesting, isn’t exactly sparking my intellect). Anyway, in an effort to kick my brain back into action, I’ve been trolling some of the groups I’m a member of in various online communities for recommendations and listing them here. The plan is to strike them off the list once read and do a quick review for the benefit of others who may be interested in the title.
… and more to come. Drop your recommendations into the comments (and let me know if you can lend me a title 🙂 )
Edit: I’ve just found ‘Shelfari‘ and I may try using that to list my readings to
Shelfari introduces readers to our global community of book lovers and encourages them to share their literary inclinations and passions with peers, friends, and total strangers (for now). Shelfari was the first social media site focused on books, and will continue to innovate as it brings together the world’s readers. Our mission is to enhance the experience of reading by connecting readers in meaningful conversations about the published word.
Shelfari were recently bought by Amazon which may also help their reach into the community of readers, speaking of which… I’m ‘NZRob‘ if you’re looking for me on there.
Another Edit (27/08/2008): Thanks to NZTebs for suggesting the addition of “BreadWinner” to the list
Update (13/10/2008): Thanks to @Gnat for suggesting “On Food and Cooking” by Harold McGee
