1. The Code Book (by Simon Singh)

I am kind of interested in Cryptography. I hope this book can entertain me enough.(but not so deep.)

2. Joel on Software (by Joel Spolsky)

This book is a must. This is so popular even in South Korea. So many people have read this but translated version.(and I think I did before..) The author, Joel Spolsky, is CEO of a software company based in Manhattan, Fog Creek Software. I have visited their website, and always think “Wow. This company is a place to be for programmers!”

3. The Best Software Writing 1 (by Joel Spolsky)

This book is also written by the same author, Joel Spolsky. I always wonder of perfection of my code and my programs, and I hope this book can help me write better code, better programs.
And here is my wish list:

1. Cathedral and the Bazaar (by Eric S. Raymond)

2. Hackers and Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age (by Paul Graham)
And I got these information about books IT people must read from an article..

I just got this awesome book from my friend yesterday.(Actually I asked her to buy me this while she was in Korea.) The author is my hero, BaekJun Lim, and this is the latest book he published.

I finished reading a couple chapters, but I already feel like.. oh right this is his writing style!
When I finish the whole book, I should contact him and have a meeting. Yay!

+ I need to write a review.!!
