Hacker Newsletter Book List - Volume One

This is the results of asking my great Hacker Newsletter subscribers what they are currently reading. I thought this experiment went very well and I found several books that I've added to my queue, including several that I hadn't seen before as well as many I had wanted to read, but had forgotten about.

I wanted to try the new jquery isotope plugin out, but ran short on time so if you have any issues with this page please let me know. All of these have my affiliate code in the link. Thanks for supporting the newsletter!
