This is a very good post series. I just finished reading all the five posts.
I was wondering... do you read all these books from cover to cover? How deep do you understand them? I mean, the more technical ones, for example the book on Thermodynamics by Fermi and the book on Number Theory and Cryptography by Neal Koblitz. Concrete Mathematics would qualify as "technical" but it's so fun and easy reading I don't want to do so.
I'm a Phd Math student and I think that Koblitz's and Lovasz's (Combinatorial Problems) aren't that easy reading as you suggest, at least if one challenge oneself to truly understand them.
Just for a parameter, from 0 to 10, how would you rank your understand of Koblitz's book?
