I recently upgraded from an iPad 2 to a iPad mini 3 Retina and have been on a e-book-buying kick. Despite my initial resistance, everything looks good on a retina screen and I’m amassing quite the library! As I come across interesting books, I am compelled to grab a copy. Sometimes the books will go unopened for a few months, but I always get to them.
Here’s my current queue:
There’s always more to learn! I’m sure this list will change by next week.
- You Don’t Know JS: Scope and Closures
- You Don’t Know JS: this & Object Prototypes
- Soft Skills
- Build APIs You Won’t Hate
- Getting Started with Laravel 4
- PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice
- You Don’t Know JS: Types & Grammar
In My Free Time
I know, right?
These books were fascinating and I had trouble putting them down once I started.
- The Connection Agency
- Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior
- Scarcity: Why Having Too Little Means So Much
I wish I had more time to read – commuting on the light rail was great for this. While it can become costly, spending money on (e-)books is something I can justify, as I’m investing in my education and my career. I may need to implement a queue cap, something like a max of 10 books at a time. Besides, I can think of many worse things i could be spending money on.
Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think? Have any suggestions for the queue?
