Three books at the moment, they all seem to intersect somehow.
The Goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt
Novel about Business Management. Quite a relaxing way to learn about it. I think I pick up on the concepts a bit quicker than the protagonist, but there is enough other stuff going on to read it as a novel between learning.
Things That Make Us Smart by Donald A. Norman
I picked this up off the shelf in the library randomly and it is a good read. It's written by a cognitive scientist and is about man's interaction with technology, why we create technology, and how we can create it in a way which enhances the user's abilities and life rather than being detrimental to it. It made me think a lot about how we use technology at home and in the workplace, and how it is often used in a way which is not the most beneficial or productive.
Understanding Media by Marshall McLuhan (reread)
One of the more important media texts around. Gives a good understanding of communications, media, and how inventions in the area influence society.Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

So now I'm reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. I dislike Mr Norrell and the part about him is excruciatingly long but I have to meet the mysterious Mr Strange.

The Mists of Avalon, by Marion Zimmer Bradley.I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

How long is now?
(Very interesting philosophical read)“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

For Whom The Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway. It's my first Hemingway's book and I'm not impressed so far. Nevertheless, it's not very wise to judge a book before having finished reading it.
