    Wow, this looks like an incredibly useful list even for a pro like myself - there's always something to be learnt.

    The only problem is... I need a system to read all these books more effectively. I have another 20 pdfs sitting on my iPad waiting to be read, dammit! Gya, forget it, I'm going to bed to read...
