Books, Phd

Getting ready for the PhD: which books will be coming with me?

I think I’ve narrowed down the books I’ll be taking with me to university to the following list of 29. My other books are, of course, no longer speaking to me. I’ll be doing reviews of some of the books in the near future, so if there are any that you particularly want to hear about, let me know!
