The Commodore 64 was a great computer, and many books were written to compliment the many aspects of the C64.
One of the many features that attracted people to the Commodore 64 was the ability to program it in BASIC. BASIC (Beginners All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) was a programming language that was easy to learn, easy to type in, and best of all, loads of fun. Many books were written on programming the C64, often containing hundreds of lines of code that, if typed in correctly, would produce a working program or game.
Other books outlined the deeper aspects of the Commodore 64, so people could hack around and come up with new ideas and programs. A classic book is the 'Commodore 64 Programmers Reference Guide' - a spiral bound, lengthy and comprehensive guide to the hardware, ROM, and other internals of the C64.
Whatever you wanted to do with the C64, there was a book to help you. There are still many Commodore 64 Books available today - check them out below.
