I just got a bunch of books from Amazon.com, I ordered them at May 12, 2005 and they arrived at my local post office on the May 19, 2005 , what is so impressive about that is that this is an international order, which means that the books waited as much time in the post office before I could pick them up as it took to deliver them.
The estimate of Amazon says that they should be here from June 6 to June 15, but the reality is much faster, and that is in the slow shipping method.
I got another order that shipped on the May 19, I believe that it will be here in another day or two.
I mostly got Mercedes Lackey's Heralds books, and some computer books (actually, I didn't finish the books from the last order, so that goes on my to do list under the category, Just Do It).
Here are the computer books that I ordered:Working Effectively with Legacy Code
I don't get to work with legacy code (woopee) [yet], but I most defiantly would at some point or another. I also heard great review of this one.Developer to Designer: GUI Design for the Busy Developer
I read the previous book and it was both fun and inspiring, I expect no less than this one, especially as I seem to be dealing with a lot of UI issues lately.Extreme Programming Explained : Embrace Change (2nd Edition)
I hope I don't need to explain this one :-D, it's a slim book, but I've great hopes for the contents.
Update: Sorry about the lousy formatting, I copy & pasted from Amazon, and it looked good when I posted it, apperantly some <td> managed to go through and ruin the post.
