There are many books I’d like to read but haven’t got enough time to read as academic books/articles are always having priority.

Recently, I found the book written by Randy Pausch, whom I wrote a post about on my old blog. The book was not in a library that I could reach easily, so I requested it internally. A librarian called me and asked if the book is for work purpose. I said NO but I am interested in it and I am sure it will help my work to some extent. Then I got the book.

I was laughing and in tears when I read it. I’m not going to review this book here. I visited the Alice site and found it’s fun and a really great way to learn programming.
