An instructor in physics at Fullerton College has written three sets of introductory physics textbooks, which have been adopted by a few schools, and seem pretty well-received. I haven’t gone through them, so I can’t say how I like them.
On the topic of books, I’m extremely happy that my university library card still works. I’ve been reading a bunch of fun novels they have (see my reading list at right). I also picked up a bunch of free books from a bin outside the Dawn Treader used bookstore.
