Books of Interest

From Noisebridge
Jump to: navigation, search

Over the years, we have all pursued a number of titles that are of interest for varying reasons. This is a poor attempt to try and list a few of our favorites out to share with others. We can also use this as a reference for books with which we should stock the Noisebridge shelf.

In the interest of chronologic significance, we should not include books of a limited technical nature (for example, PHP5 for Dummies), but instead those which grant a broader outlook on life.

The current format is book title, author, and your name. If multiple people like a book, you can add your names into the "Suggested By" field. We should probably also have some way to denote whether it is on the shelf at Noisebridge. Also, there is no real categorization yet, I am including technical as well as nontechnical.
