Reading

The most effective way to change your life is to read novels. The first book to have this effect on me was The Catcher in the Rye.

I didn’t feel this way until college. It was a computer science professor who made me realize how important reading is. Computing I with Jim Canning included an introduction to programming with C as well as The Elements of Style, the preamble to the Constitution, High Noon and Flatland. Here’s the webpage for his enrichment program. Notice the healthy mix of programming with fiction.
