I have the first edition (1997) of the Oxford Concise Colour Science Dictionary. I read about sand, Sandmeyer reaction, and sandwich compound in it this morning.

Ever since I bought the book at Waterstone’s in Ilford, I have been reading it like a novel. I am currently up to the entries beginning with “S”.

I also have Studying Literature: The Essential Companion (2001) by Paul Goring, Jeremy Hawthorn, and Domhnall Mitchell. I picked up the copy at a recycling centre behind a store of Sainsbury’s several days ago. Mischief.gif

Today, as I was taking some papers for recycling, I found several interesting books – one of which was a copy of the second edition (1995) of A Short History of Modern Philosophy: From Descartes to Wittgenstein by Roger Scruton! ThumbsUp.gif

At the moment, I have three mathematics textbooks in the Oxford Science Publications series: Introduction to Metric and Topological Spaces (1975) by W.A. Sutherland, A Course in Number Theory (1994 second edition; reprinted 2007 with revisions made in 1999) by H.E. Rose, and A Course in Number Theory (1996) by John F. Humphreys. I bought the second and third of these at Waterstone’s, Gower Street (near Tottenham Court Road) – but the first was salvaged from a book bank, where someone had discarded it for recycling.

I also have a book on Galois theory and one on algebraic topology, both purchased at Waterstone’s. wink.gif

I've just finished reading Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. I think I'll start reading Was Einstein Right? by Clifford M. Will. Subtitled “Putting General Relativity to the test”, this book is about experimental tests of Einstein's celebrated theory of 1915 and was first published in 1986, though I'll be reading the second edition, published in 1993.

Yesterday, I bought a textbook on particle physics, Particle Physics, Second Edition (1997) by B.R. Martin and G. Shaw, at an Oxfam charity bookshop in Wanstead. I want to read it because I’m feeling bored at the moment.
