I think by supplement I really mean replace. I spent a lot of time agonizing over the first chapter of Kittel as he introduces a bunch of concepts such as Bravais lattice and he doesn't clearly define them. It's frustrating and infuriating considering that I have no background in crystallography nor solid state physics, and as an introduction to the subject I haven't found the book to be very helpful.
