This section is about books. Maybe some reviews, maybe just (dis-)recommendations.
As of now, I'm not planning this section to be a complete track of what I read.
Just selected highlights.
I mostly read English lately. But still I read some Lithuanian and Russian
stuff occasionally. And it happens sometimes that I like what I read. So if
something non-English appears on this list, please, bear with me.

An exhaustive Haskell book. A little bit too academic, but hey -- Haskell
itself is quite a bit of academic. I haven't read all of it yet, only the
parts I'm most interested in, about the language itself.
A particularly enlightening book. I already wrote some of my
initial impressions on this book in my news section when I
read it, but it is a recommended reading with an exceptional
kind of must read.
Another must-read if you seek enlightenment. It's one of those
books that I jokingly call books with low ROI: you're done
reading them too fast :-). But it's so good, you're OK to start
reading it over again.
Not the best of the series, so I wouldn't recommend it for
those, who haven't bought into Pratchett yet. However, it
does its job shedding some light on the structure of Discworld,
making it a useful part when looking at the series as a whole.
A terrific projection of rock music unto Discworld! Anyone
who likes rock, fantasy and good laugh (or any sub-combinations,
in any order) should like this one.
