Age of Reason

Random musing of books and stuff I am reading.


Christmas Reading

Bought DK's "Essential Shakespeare Guide" on a Borders gift card.
The book has excellent pictures, but not much information on language.
Probably popular book with party goers and trivia droppers, kind of people
who talk about Shakespeare rather than read his plays.

That is the problem with gift cards -
you have to carry it around, you feel obliged to cash it,
it was useless at a Barnes and Noble with a larger book selection.

Also Plodding thru Gusfield's explanation of Ukkonen's algorithm to
build suffix trees in linear time.

Also reading "World of Nagaraj" by R.K.Narayan. Nagaraj is building up
suspense by doing nothing, the reader is waiting for something to happen,
why is the tao silent? R.K. is a master writer.
