Six Years: another pointless list

In renewing a work library book online the other day, I stumbled across a record of all the books I've borrowed from Suffolk College/University Campus Suffolk library in the last six years. Six years = my time as a lecturer in both Further and Higher Education. It includes the time I did my PGCE course and several videos I used to borrow every 4 weeks for a repeated teaching session. Fascinating only to me perhaps, but I thought I'd publish the 122 item list none-the-less:

Successful IT projects in Excel

Is it in order? If so is 'Successful IT Projects in Excel' the first book, or most recent book you read? Have you also read the companion volume 'Unsuccessful IT Projects in Excel'? - in my experience it seems to be the more commonly read textbook.

'Successful IT Projects in Excel' was the first. It was recommended for IT Key Skills tutors. Needless to say I didn't read it and needless to say I circumnavigated teaching Excel. I can admit that now I no longer am responsible for teaching IT Key Skills, a thank less task to have to do to numeracy phobic 16 year olds who never saw the point of it in relation to their art and design course. (And it was a separate qualification, if the didn't pass it, they would still get their National Diploma so where's the incentive?) And I agreed with them being numeracy phobic myself. If I ever want a spreadsheet creating (and I really have to stretch my imagination as to why that might be the case) then I'll pay someone to do it for me.

Apologies for the appalling grammar in the above comment.
