    I have only MM AIO and MM Passport. I could get my hands on other books easily but they would be way over my head... plus i am more of a CBT person.

    I have about 70/80 or thereabouts.

    I have various A+ and N+ core and lab books. I have also started collecting CCNA/P and CCDA books. I won an auction on eBay for a huge load of them - it included CCIE. I won't be reading them for a while, but I own them.

    Then I have a few theory books, but if anyone has Tanenbaum's latest edition on Networking going begging, I'll snap it up.

    I've got a few Hacks books, some books on intrusion, one Visio guide, one Unix guide, one Nortel complete book...errr...a book on Wireless telecoms, a book on electronics for computing students...a Repair Bench book...

    Then there's my other bookcase, with my fiction books (mainly fantasy/sci fi, with some Terry Pratchett smattered between), my Maths books (algebrea, calculus), my books on German, Latin and Ancient history.

    Yes. I'm a geek. Yes. I'm proud. Yes. I've found someone that will sleep with me 8)

    The books are great to:

    1. hold doors open.
    2. to balance out wobble tables/chairs
    3. for wood sub, when you're doing a BBQ
    4. to study (so I'm told)...

    I have several hundred IT related books - some of them going back many years.

    The IT library is kept apart from the main one - that has about 2000 books or so.

    Space (and the gf) limits the amount of books that I have. At one point I had close to 50 IT related books. I of course never read them all from cover to cover, but they did come in usefull for reference at times.

    These days I think that I have about 10 - 15, my favorites at the moment being the O'Reilley series of books, particularly the nutshell ones.

    I think that I offloaded all of my ones that were soley taylored to Certifications. 8)

    Well over 100 in Certification prep books alone, probably 500 IT related books total. :p

    I mean, Are you including manuals for video cards and modems? :p

    I still have old Isa modem manuals that showed the jumper settings.




    :eek:
    OK, I'm suddenly feeling very old.
    nevermind, I'm leaving now :blink

    "PET/CBM Personal Computer Guide"
