    I am reading the seventh Harry Potter book (call me a tool all you want - HP is my life) and a compilation of Enlightenment essays. Which is strange to say the least, because I heartily disagree with most Enlightenment values.

    This month I read two of the classics by Jules Verne: Le tour du monde en quatre-vignt jours e voyage au centre de la terre, i had never read them and I wanted to brush up my french. I must say they both have been a thoroughly enjoyable read, I love Verne's subdued sense of humor.

    Right now I'm reading "Dark Fire" by C.J. Sansom, part of the Shardlake series - Sansom is such a good writer, sooo british.

    "The Ultimate History of Video Games", Steven L. Kent

    It's about the Video Game industry, the players, the technology and the lanscapes of the markets at the time. I must be in a suggestible state, as I walk down the isles of major retailers a hallucinatory 'voice' of the author tries to describe to me how those particular items got onto the shelf and how they were marketed.

    Also listening to "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" as read by the late Douglas Adams. This one's effect on my mind is even more insidious.

    Pretty decent story. Gorgeous, fruity prose.

    just started a two-part sci-fi series, "the color of distance" and "through alien eyes" by amy thomson.

    the prose is somewhat minimalist, but the writer raises some interesting issues re: what does it mean to "be oneself" or, on a broader scale, to "be human". or what should one do if the familiar boundaries between "self" and "other" start to melt and one becomes a walking, breathing third space (in this specific case, in a very direct physical sense, but it could also be read as a metaphor for a less extreme self/other clash).
