    Question of the Week


    Hi All,

    After years of being in the forums and getting help and giving the little help I'm capable of I realized that we "hang out" a lot but yet know so little about each other outside of Linux world (and possibly our favorite movies). So I'm trying to see if we can get a weekly question that is completely unrelated to Linux, if it works out I'll try to post one every Friday, if not, well I'll give up quickly and keep us in our virtual space

    Question: If you had to recommend one book and/or book series, what would it be?
    Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
    Dell Studio 17, Intel Graphics card, 4 gigs of RAM, E17

    My recommendation to others would be The Lord of the Rings series of books.

    Terry Pratchett: Guard Guards, actually the whole series of books about the Ankh Morpork City Watch, Citye of One Thousande Surprises.

    Foxfire Book series for me.


    Wealth of info in those. I have a few novels I keep on the shelf at my ranch.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
    Accepting Death is the only way to stay alive.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Great start folks! Knuth - The Art of Computer Programming
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    FWIW, I've had the first 3 volumes for about 20+ years. Just got the new 4th volume this past fall. Awesome!

    LOTR goes with out saying, so I'll just say it here. Magician by Raymon E. Feist is another great fantasy and I am refreshing my distressingly rusty OO by reading through Head First Object Oriented Analysis & Design

    [edit]
    Oh and The War of Powers is an amazing read. But probably not for kids.

    Should you be sitting wondering,
    Which Batman is the best,
    There's only one true answer my friend,
    It's Adam Bloody West!
