I've got a ton of Forrest Mims books on my bookshelf -- I was on holiday 
on Long Island, NY in mid-2001, and figured I needed some reading 
material. Visited two different RadioShack stores and came back with an 
armful of books. Think I read the Engineers' Mini-Notebooks 
cover-to-cover and simulated a lot of the circuits on my 486 laptop. 
Good fun. Shame they didn't have any breadboards in stock otherwise I 
might have actually built a few of those projects :)

I'm a complete packrat, and a sucker for anything that looks remotely 
"interesting"... as my long-suffering mother will gladly confirm :)
