Books I'm reading

Books I'm reading.

I'm reading several books right now.

Bob Reselman's Coding Slave. So far it's an interesting read, have more to say when I'm done. Bob's show on .NET Rocks, by the way, simply rocked. Check out Rory Blyth's account.

Dan Appleman's Always Use Protection, a Teen's Guide to Safe Computing. This book is misnamed. He wrote it for teenagers, but every computer user should read this book. I'm on page 20 and I've already learned a few tips.

Microsoft in the Mirror. Interesting stories from regular employees inside Microsoft. Very Channel9ish. Gives insight into our development processes and more.

Karl Moore's Visual Basic .NET: the Tutorials. I've given up on C#. Sorry Don Box. I'm no Einstein. VB is more my style, since I'm never going to program for more than a few minutes a week. Background compilation makes it easier for me to get into programming (if I mispell a variable, for instance, VB tells me right after I type it, so much easier).

Speaking of books, have you checked out All Consuming? This site is a website that watches weblogs for books that they're talking about, and displays the most popular ones on an hourly basis. Very interesting site. Thanks to Sean Kelly and Lili Cheng over at Microsoft Research for showing me this site.  [Scobleizer: Microsoft Geek Blogger]
