Had myself a little adventure last night…on a mission to find a decent book on .NET programming.
So after a stop for dinner at the Red Arrow Diner, we hit the local Barnes & Noble.
It’s truly amazing: there are so many poorly written software titles out there. Page after page laden with only-in-high-school-allow-me-to-repeat-myself-in-a-slightly-different-way paragraphs. Gotta pad out the content.
As in most genres, the quality runs the spectrum from great to kinda OK to stink-a-rama. After becoming quite frustrated I stumbled onto a pretty decent book, paid the more than slightly shocking price of $59.99, and left for home.
