Book shelf

Last book I was read is something about electricity at University program.
That was quite a long time ago, almost 5 years. Now I'm working as software engineer (programmer) at Cisco Systems for a about 2 years.

One day I found myself missing books. Internet is good, it is a lot of stuff there. It is too much there that you can lose one's way without a compass. So I opened browser at Amazon and started to collect my «geeky» library.
