I feel kind of lame to count this towards My List of Books I Read This Year, but hey, I read through most of it and a book is a book.

It's a decent textbook introduction to computer science. Goes through the history, social, and technical of CS without getting too deep into any one of those topics.

How much do I love computer programming? Enough to sign up for database systems next semester... This book is very understandable, even to the novice. It incorporates a good blend of history and technical knowledge.
