Geekdom can be about anything, books included. I dislike not having anything new to read at home, but there’s no danger of that in the near future! I’ve got a stack of books that I mean to get around to reading in the new year (and in what’s left of this one, to be honest).
I’ve got “The Man in the High Castle” by Philip K Dick and “Why I Write” by George Orwell to finish off that I’m partway through. Unread and in no particular order I’ve got the following books waiting for yours truly to read:
- The Owl Service by Alan Garner
- A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
- The Ring + The Opposite of Death by Jose Saviano
- Best of Rebelle Society Vol 1: Celebrating the Art of Being Alive, curated by Andrea Balt & Tanya Lee Markul
- Balderdash & Piffle by Alex Games
- Wizardry and Wild Romance by Michael Moorecock
- A Brief History of Fables: From Aesop to Flash Fiction by Lee Rourke
- Approaching Zero: Data Crime and the Computer Underworld by Bryan Clough & Paul Mungo
- The Psychopath Test: A Journey through the Madness Industry by Jon Ronson
- Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
- The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra
- And last but not least without a trace of irony… Speed Reading for Dummies by Richard Sutz with Peter Weverka
All of these bar one were bought on a whim in the last few months, mostly from second-hand bookshops around London. The Michael Moorecock book I’ve read before when I was in High School. I’ve no idea where my first copy is now; I’m sure I leant it to someone and never got it back.
So, what’s in your reading pile?
