Welcome to the Perl 6 READTHEM file.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nothing refreshes the brain after a long day of Perl 6 hacking like a good
book. This file is a list of book recommendations from the Perl 6 Hackers
themselves.
Feel free to add your favorite book or periodical to the list; it need not
be just programming books, anything goes, really.
