I’ve been busy with, oh, finding a place to live, moving and getting things
set up but I did read a few books:
- [Motherless Brooklyn](http://isbn.nu/0375724834) by Jonathan Lethem. Quirky, suspense novel akin to the hard-boiled private eye genre.
- [True History of the Kelly Gang](http://isbn.nu/0375410848) by Peter Carey.
The first-person narrative is a good story but the author’s stylization, bereft of punctuation and studded with 19th century affectations, put me off. It took
several tries before I could finish wading through the pages and, frankly, I’m undecided if it really is that good a story.
- [The Pragmatic Programmer](http://isbn.nu/020161622X) by Andrew Hunt and
David Thomas. I reread a few technical texts periodically, this is one of them.
Every programmer should read it at least once.
