    I haven't touch one of those books in years.
    All I do now is studying web development (php, ajax, etc).

    I do miss it cause I use to read a lot, but life got more complicated and have no time.

    Louie I’m the same, I haven’t lifted a book up in years. I always wonder people find the time to lift a book, I guess my life is really unbalanced :eek:


    I think the last book I read (non-work related) was The Bachman Books by Stephen King, amazing stories.

    I always make a point of having at least one book on the go. My biggest problem is that I run out of reading material every few weeks and the bookshops here in Carlow aren't exactly amazing when it comes to choice :mad:

    Currently reading all the Wife's books as I'm too lazy to go to the library. Quite good; some of 'em.

    Did anyone ever read "Inside Intel" by Tim Jackson? Now there's a scary book :eek:

    No but from what I have read on amazon I am going to get a copy. I am actually reading the Forbes Greatest Business Stories of all time, which contains a chapter on Intel's Microprocessor and the Computer Revolution.
