A bit weak at the end, but still quite good. I look forward to the third!

A story about "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates" — 9 years ago
I can’t let go of the urge to read this again and again. One of my favourite books.
A story about "Java Software Solutions: Foundations of Program Design, Update JavaPlace" — 9 years ago
Pretty comprehensive for an introductory textbook. A bit slow, but that’s to be expected.
A story about "The H. P. Lovecraft Companion" — 9 years ago
This book was very useful as a clear overview of his work. The section on the mythos monsters was especially helpful.
Blocking the combinations into set groups (tranquil, striking, etc) was a handy tool, although I noticed the presence of “feminine” colours but a lack of “masculine”…
A story about "Breaking the Rules in Publication Design" — 9 years ago
This book, serving merely as an advertisement for the design firms involved, could have included a bit more content regarding why the designs were good and how they were breaking the rules, rather than just the images of the designs themselves.
A story about "M*A*S*H Goes to Montreal" — 8 years ago
My my, how things have changed. A man would never consider marrying a nurse for her money in this day and age, least of all in Canada.
A story about "Comedy: "An Essay on Comedy" by George Meredith. "Laughter" by Henri Bergson" — 8 years ago
Pretty boring stuff, and nothing I can apply. Too bad.
A story about "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! (Adventures of a Curious Character)" — 8 years ago
Dear Lord! I can’t get a hold on this guy. He’s quite the braggart, making sure to specify each and every one of his accomplishments. But then again, he deserves to be a braggart; he’s done so much. By about halfway through the book I became tired of boasting, but until then I was stimulated by his curiosity and his desire to KNOWEVERYTHING. When I’m curious about something I don’t necessarily follow up on it, but while reading the book I was inspired to do so. I can’t say I liked this autobiography, but it certainly changed the way I think about science. Permanently, I hope.
