Library Sale!

Sometimes, the Library on-site at Hursley needs to clear the shelves for new additions. Here are some long-lost gems from the recent clear-out.

It’s like a glimpse into the computing past. I’m a particular fan of the futuristic “Mind Appliance” (looked and sounded great, but turned out to be filled with BASIC programs), and the book about the exciting new computer language, PASCAL.

To be fair though, I did end up picking up a free copy of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which Martin has been recommending to me for ages.

  1. This reminds me of a charity book sale which we held recently in the Dublin lab. I donated several books that had been overcrowding my bookshelf at home. I was delighted with the reduced clutter and saved the guilt of throwing out pefectly good books.

    On the day of the book sale I went along and bought several interesting looking books … when I got home my wife pointed out that many of the books I bought were ones that I had donated myself :-$
