I have a huge backlog of books to be read before this calender year ends. And I don’t think I can meet my expectations.
- Mahabharata – C Rajagopalachari.
- Great Indian Novel – Shashi Tharoor.
- The White Tiger – Arvind Adiga
- I am a Strange Loop – Douglas Hofstadter
- Tamil Pulp Fiction.
- Sacred Games – Vikram Chandra
- A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini.
- Lord of the Rings. Part 2 and Part 3. – J R R Tolkien.
I own all the books except Great Indian Novel by Shashi Tharoor. I did own it, then someone borrowed it and now I cannot recollect who. So, in case one of you readers has borrowed it, please ping me privately so that I know atleast who has the book 😉
The papers I want to finish reading include:
- Rethink the Sync – Nightingale, Veeraraghavan, Chen, Flinn
- Hazard Pointers: Safe Memory Reclamation for
Lock-Free Objects – Maged M Michael.
- Dynamo: Amazon’s Highly Available Key-value Store – Giuseppe DeCandia, Deniz Hastorun, Madan Jampani, Gunavardhan Kakulapati, Avinash Lakshman, Alex Pilchin, Swaminathan Sivasubramanian, Peter Vosshall and Werner Vogels.
- Flexible Decoupled Transactional Memory Support – Arrvindh Shriraman, Sandhya Dwarkadas, Michael L. Scott.
1 and 3 were suggested by Comp. 2 to understand how the approach differs from RCU’s delayed reclamation. 4 because it’s on Transactional Memory 🙂
Currently Reading “India after Gandhi” by Ramachandra Guha and “Brewer’s Conjucture and the Feasibility of Consistent, Available, Partition-tolerant Web Services” – Seth Gilbert and Nancy Lynch.
