Book Fest

Hoorah - the postman has just delivered my order from Amazon :

  • The Meaning of Everything by Simon Winchester
  • The Surgeon of Crowthorne by Simon Winchester
  • The Google Story by David A. Vise

Haven't read a really good book for ages (well about 3 weeks) so I hope I've got some treats ahead of me!

PS When you spellcheck 'Google' it comes up with 'Googol' (definition: The number 10 raised to the power 100 (10100), written out as the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros), which apparently Brin and Page meant to call it in the first place but misspelt it.

Ooh, you'll love The Meaning of Everything! I haven't read the other Winchester (I thought I'd read most all of 'em!). Let me know how it goes.
