The smell of paint is strong in my home so instead of coding I spent the time in the bathtub. Some people solve problems for kings in the bathtub, I start to wonder how much of a bookshelf my geek books would fill. Time well spent. Now I feel the need to buy more books to fill all of it. Don't worry if you plan to get into game development, you do not need to read that many books. Gamedev is easy, the free floating of the mind in the bathtub is hard.
All the books about AI did not make me smart enough to avoid buying two of AI Game Programming Wisdom.
