I dont want to sound sarcastic.. but looking at the things you are yet to read, you have a lot to catch up.

Care to share what you *have* read so far?

^ There are a whole lot of books that are there to be read...and there's a whole lot of catching up _each_ one of us has to do.
Mukta: thanks for that list, I'm going to pick up a few of those soon!
