    What's on your bookshelf?
    From: Dave Walden
    Date: 2006 Sep 8, 21:13 -0500

    I've been curious what references others on the list have on their
    shelves at home and why.  It seemed only fair to give a shot at it
    myself first.  I had started to do Astronomy books as well, but things
    were getting out of hand.

    Anyone else?
