    Reference Books at Work and Home


    Where do you keep your reference books (software development in particular)?

    There are reference books from programming to network administration. I have many reference programming books. I program at work and at home and these reference books are imperative. Buying two copies of the same book is, well, conceivably a waste of money.

    Do you care with you a huge box of books everywhere you go? How about business trip?

    For me I just use the e-books that come with most references. It's a lot easier on the books too.

    Of course, there are times I wish I had Petzolds book with me, but there is always someone here at that has helped me out when I didn't have the ref. I needed.

    BLASPHEMY! Begone from my C board, you foul lover of objects, before the gods of C cast you into the void as punishment for your weakness! There is no penance for saying such things in my presence. You are henceforth excommunicated. Never return to this house, filthy heretic!

    I don't often work on the same projects at home and at work. I usually can't stand to do the same type of work at both. Therefore, I only need one set of books at each.
