The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood,
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Amazonia by James MarcusIt was more of a memoir of sorts then an actual informative book about the rise of amazon.com into the internet business. nevertheless it provided fascinating insights of the rise and fall of the importance of the editorial team in the company. it never even occured to me that amazon.com would have an editorial team. I glossed over the middle parts, though. This book also raises some thoughts on the many that made it rich overnight during the dot.com bubble... accidental richness and also the author's struggle with reconciling literature and business. its all from the author's point of view. and all in all, not too bad a read.
