I am currently reading "Ubuntu Kung Fu" by Keir Thomas ISBN-10 1-934356-22-0 . The link is here ( Ubuntu Kung Fu | O'Reilly Media ). I run Ubuntu in a virtual partition - a good way to study it and experiment with it. If that sounds tempting to you, follow the instructions here ( http://www.winvistaclub.com/forum/wi...partition.html ). I recommend to use Virtual box.

Fun thread idea!!!
Not including the readings I have for my course work nor the dictionary that seems to never leave my side, my two current reads are <a href="http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1964/sartre-bio.html">Jean-Paul Sartre's</a> book titled <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=mqRkAAAAMAAJ&q=sartre+literature+and+exis tentialism&dq=sartre+literature+and+existentialism &ei=d4GfSev7N5jEM4Sm2IoC&client=firefox-a&pgis=1">Literature and Existentialism</a> and a book suggested to me by my father that he read some time ago titled <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=dlG1NUtKoZgC&q=harry+bright&dq=harry+brig ht&ei=ToOfSYuvJpOUMZLw2IoC&client=firefox-a&pgis=1">The Secrets of Harry Bright</a> by Joseph Wambaugh.
I will note in Sartre's book I'm stubbornly trudging through what I've read so far and at times reversing for "do-overs" just to understand the topic but Wambaugh's is really turning out to be a lot of fun!

Being a nautical history buff, I am currently reading CAPTAIN OF OLD IRONSIDES: The Life and Fighting Times of Isaac Hull and the U. S. Frigate Constitution by Bruce Grant.
Very entertaining reading...while it is fact, it reads like a Hornblower novel.
This one is out of print, but if anyone is looking for used books online, www.abebooks.com is your friend.

before this went down I mentioned that I was reading a book on Egyptian Queens, as ti turned out that didn't tell me anything that I didn't know already. But in a reply about pyramids I gave an answer of them only really being around for about 200-300 years. I was partically right, but further research means that I have to correct my answer and say that Pyramids were built in Egypt for approximately 770 years from 2630- 1860. I have this information from The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt edited by Helen Strudwick which I am presently reading
