Had a nice, relaxing holiday, read a few books, I can recommend Charles Petzold's Code and kind of recommend Homer, Sussman and Howard's Introducing ASP.NET 2.0 - I say 'kind of' because I found it really patchy in the writing style...but then I've never liked one of the authors' styles (not Rob's :-)).

 Code is a pretty unique book, goes right from morse code, through binary arithmetic, electronics and right on to microprocessors and finally code - ties it all together in a way that my CS classes never did, not very easy going but very interesting and informative!

Introducing ASP.NET 2.0 gives coverage to most of the new ASP.NET 2.0 specific features - it's NOT a coding book though, more just a general overview of what the new bits are - anyone know a more codey .NET 2.0 book?
