In my last post, I said I was in Italy on vacation and you may be thinking to yourself (most likely not, but just go with it) “what high tech gizmos did he bring with him on his travels?” and I would happily reply “A book!”, yes a paper book. Being a software developer, I have access to tons of technology, more so when it comes to paper book replacements but there is just something about a real book that makes reading and learning for me better than using a computer, tablet, or doohickey.
So looking over the times for my flight it seems that it takes about 22 hours to get to New Zealand from Boston and about the same to get back from Australia. 22 hours is a long time to be in one place….Well, not really one place, but sitting. So thanks to the great site, http://www.thriftebook.com I been loading up on ebooks to read on the trip. The 2 books I’m really looking forward to reading are Groovy in Action and Grails in Action both from Manning Publications Co.
