    Good list! I have read a lot of these books, but am missing a few. I think I will put The Little Schemer on my list next.

    I tried to subscribe to your feed but it didn’t show up on my homepage at yahoo.com. Is it working correctly?

    @CC I just tested it with a yahoo homepage and it worked. It might have been just a glitch on feedburners part. Please try again, and let me know if works.

    Feedburner has been very unreliable lately so it wouldn’t surprise me if it was their fault. They have stopped delivering email to my subscribers, and have been very unstable for the past few weeks while migrating everyone to a new system. I’m hoping that they get their act together soon, but I’ve been thinking of dropping them.

    Some books require strong maths skills. Which maths texts would you recommend to improve your maths?

      The only book on this list that requires a strong math background is TAOCP, but TAOCP requires some fairly advanced math to fully grok.

      You might try studying up on calculus, boolean logic, and discrete math to start.
