I was surfing the net when I stumbled on this interesting citation included below. The book mentioned in the lower right of the blackboard caught my eye because you seldom see a computer textbook listed along with The Great Gatsby and Crime and Punishment. On second thought, many of my students thought being forced to read my book was some sort of crime and punishment.
