I am very new to this forum. In fact this is the first posting. I am also not the best at proper etiquette or spelling. Never the less, I hope i did not miss that this was allready posted in order to prevent redundancy, but I am a big fan of the encyclopedia of electronic circuits series. There are no explanations on how the circuits really work, but there are thousands of circuits in which you can clone, modify and own. Each book is about 1000 pages of nothing but circuits. when you get the chance, you can look into it sometime.
