Recent additions to the bookshelfPosted: October 15, 2008
One of the advantages of this past year has been a commute from the south of London to the center of the city daily that meant I had between 1 1/2 and 2 hours sitting or standing while waiting to get where I was going. Sometimes that went to reading academic papers for my masters, but a lot of the time it went to recreational reading. Add that to the fact that I got a library card as soon as I could(making this the sixth city on the third continent where I have paid library fines) and I was able to get through quite a few books. Well, considering that I was in school at the time.
The highlight list includes:
- Neil Gaiman’s American Gods
- Nicholas Hornsby’s High Fidelity
- Steven Barnes’ Great Sky Woman
- Mark Law’s The Pyjama Game: A journey Into Judo
That’s not a fully complete list, but those are most of the books I remember. Well, there’s also a bunch of classic science fiction books, but I’ll talk about those later
