Wow, it's been a while since I noted one of these, hasn't it?

Well, I covered, that I remember, since..crap, february.

#13 Goblin Hero: Fun little book, about a reluctant Goblin who goes on a quest (well, more gets shoved on a quest) to save the world as he knows it. There's a previous work somewhere in there, that I haven't been bothered to track down.

#14 Myth Hunters: Fun book that involves living Myths (Jack Frost is one of the main characters), a normal(?) human caught in the mist of a war in what's basically faire land, and a foxy lady (heehee). Followed by Borderkind, which I'm slogging my way through.

#15 White Knight Newest Dresden book. Damnit, and here I was hoping to see Murphy as the new Knight. Ah, well. Carlos as a virgin was priceless.

#16 Kushiel's Justice OMG SQUEE!!! SQUEEE!!!! *pant* *pant* *pant* SQUEEE!!! *pant* *pant* SQUEEEEEE! *head explode* On a more serious note, I've been working on a dissection of this book for a while in my spare time. Actually, I've been meaning to write up a whole big thing on what those books mean to me, one by one, and how they relate to not only how I see my life/reality, but how they've effected said perception, both for the better and worse.

#17 Learning Python, 2nd Edition This book was actually a pretty good base for purposes of 'I need to figure out what the hell this is doing, what this means, etc'. I don't think that, on it's own, I would recommend it for actually learning the language, but it's very well put together for figuring out how the language works.

Learning Python was what remotesensing suggested for wedgex.

I flipped through it in the store and looked at Wedge and said "Niner thinks you know how to code already. Not so much." We left the store with Stef and Aahz Maruch's Python for Dummies instead.

LPython is certainly no Learning Perl, which remains one of the best intro-to-programming books I've read on the "you're an Average Joe who needs to Get Something Done" level.

Ok, I should have prefaced my statement with "as someone with some programming experince who is trying to figure out what the hell Python is talking about..."

I'm someone with some programming experience who is trying to figure out what the hell Python is talking about!

.. but I'm not a ninja :(

Nor are you seven feet tall, nor do you shoot lightning bolts from your arse.

We've got all *KINDS* of stuff in common, don't we!

You think *you're* not a ninja. Wedge is clinging to Wook's pant leg all "You want me to *do what?*" about this. ; )
