Book Collection

Updated 10-26-2013 at 10:26 PM by rocket357 (Update books I own)

I've been busy assembling a good library of computing books (stuff that directly interests me, of course...so you won't find Java or such in this list), and I would like to get some input (in the event I've overlooked critical "must-have" books). I don't own all of these (yet), but I've been buying them left and right as I can afford it (I usually buy one or two each payperiod, used on Amazon...as long as the book is readable and not too banged up, I'm game).
