Help Fight Cancer and Get a Free Book!

This coming Sunday, Rebecca and I will be cycling the fifty miles from London to Cambridge as part of the annual (and obviously named) London to Cambridge Bike Ride. You can sponsor me by heading over to Bmycharity - Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

This year, however, I've decided to try something a little bit different for my fundraising. Listed below are a number of books that I need to get rid of to make some more space on my bookshelves. Anybody who wants one of them can have one, provided they sponsor me for the ride, and I'll cover the postage for the book.

The books:

  • Formula One: The Championship 1997 - A Complete Race-by-race Guide by David Tremayne
  • Jeremy Clarkson's Hot 100 - Cars that make you go Phwoar!
  • The Fastest Cars From Around the World
    Guinness World Records 2002
  • Advanced Engineering Mathematics by Erwin Kreyszig
  • Software Project Survival Guide by Steve McConnell
  • Dancing with Cats by Burton Silver and Heather Busch
  • Flip & Easy One Pot recipe book
  • Unix System Administration Handbook by Evi Nemeth, Garth Snyder and Scott Seebass
  • The First-time Manager by Loren B. Belker
  • The Definitive Guides to the X Window System: Volume 6A - Motif Programming Manual by Dan Heller & Paula M. Ferguson
  • The Definitive Guides to the X Window System: Volume 6B - Motif Reference Manual by Paula M. Ferguson
  • Linux Unleashed by Husain, Parker, et al.
  • Leonardo's Laptop by Ben Schneiderman
  • Laughter: A Scientific Investigation by Robert R. Provine
  • Billy (Connolly's biography) by Pamela Stephenson
  • Manchester, England: The story of the pop cult city by Dave Haslam
  • Microserfs by Douglas Coupland
  • Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Singh
  • Probability: the book that proves there is life in outer space by Amir D. Aczel
  • Learning to Program in C by N. Kantaris
  • Deeper: a two-year odyssey in cyberspace by John Seabrook
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

And if there wasn't anything you want in the list, you're still allowed to be old-fashioned and just sponsor me anyway.
