What's up, you ask? Enjoying life, I answer.
There's a heat wave sweeping over Norway, which means taking a walk in the day is out of the question, so I've been taking late evening walks when it's cool enough to do so. I don't feel like writing much in this heat, but I'll give an update of the books I've read recently, in category form.
- The Biomega series
- The Flood/Ark series by Stephen Baxter
- Childhood's End, The City and the Stars, and A Fall of Moondust, all excellent Clarke books
- Look to Windward, a Culture novel
- Zima Blue and Other Stories, my first try at Alastair Reynolds
- Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
- The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
- Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton
- Mortality by Christopher Hitchens
- The Happy Atheist, P. Z. Myers' first book!
- Varieties of Religious Experience by William James, a book that went over my head
"Hidden so deep in veils of deceit, imprisoned in twisting spells. / Are we the plaything of fiends, or merely the dreams that we're telling ourselves, telling ourselves?"
