Micro by Michael Crichton
Rate this book
Clear rating
It's a Michael Crichton book, of course I liked it. I picked it up on a Thursday, and couldn't really think of doing much else until I finished it Sunday morning. It's a fun, quick read, like you'd expect from the author. There's a bibliography, whic ...more

The Lucifer Key by Malcolm MacPherson

Clear rating
Found this at an antique store (copyright 1981), and was curious what a techno-thriller from thenish would be like. Not so tech-y, it turns out, and not particularly good tech-y when it tried. Storyline was fine enough, though with some additional ri ...more

Scala for the Impatient by Cay S. Horstmann
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've started finally writing some scala at work, so was happy to have the excuse to pick this book up. Scala's an interesting language, and one I'm definitely still learning. This book certainly helped, and I'm sure I'll return to it as I'm actually ...more

The Backyard Goat by Sue Weaver
Rate this book
Clear rating
Definitely think it'd be fun to have a goat after reading this book. I still feel lacking in information though, like what a good shelter would look like or have, where do I buy food (some guesses here) and how much could I expect it to be (certainly ...more
