My Computer Books

They say that knowledge is man’s greatest treasure… well, then, I guess I’m a rich guy, only not in money, but in this.

I have a lot of IT or PC-related books. I figured I’d list all of them here, since it’s quite a collection. Almost everything I know about computers, I’ve learned from these books here. Trust me, they don’t really teach you anything in school. Ever.

If you’re wondering why I have so many books about topics and things I already know, and some of them know well, the answer is simple: your memory is never going to last, but these books will. I had taught myself everything I know, either from books or from the Internet, but one day I won’t remember some things, or nothing at all, so what am I going to do when I need something? Also… collecting things is one of my favorite things to do, so why not computer books?

I have literally read from these two books time and time again when I was a kid. They have a special place in my childhood, because when I didn’t have a PC to play with anymore, the only thing I was left with was reading from the PC books I had, and looking at the screenshots whenever it was the case… so I could at least imagine what it would be like to do whatever I could read about in the book.

They represent my humble beginnings, especially the one about Windows 95, which literally taught me how to use a Windows operating system – in this case Windows 95, the one which came with my first computer.
