Books to Pick Up Again

We're leaving for a two-week trip in a few days and so we've go to return our books to the Library, because they can only be checked out for two weeks. We love our library - The Central Rappahannock Regional Library. It has a great collection and a very good online presence. It has been the recipient of several awards, as well. Still, whenever we take a prolonged trip we try to gather up the books that we've been renewing and renewing for many months and return.

Some that we've had checked out are great cook books, some are used for reference, and some, for one reason or another, we have been taking a very long time to read. So this entry, and maybe some others will list some books, that I'll want to check out again when we return.

The Dream Machine by M.Mitchell Waldrop. A great account of J.C.R. Licklider and his influence on the development of the Internet, and time-shared and personal computing.

Some cookbooks:
