Stockpile, stockpile of un-reviewed books grows...

I owe you (and to myself) the reviews of:

  1. „The Name of The Rose” by Umberto Eco (read third time in my life)
  2. „Foucault's Pendulum” by the same author (read second time in my life)
  3. „Infinite Reality: Avatars, Eternal Life, New Worlds, and the Dawn of the Virtual Revolution” by Jim Blascovich and Jeremy Bailenson
  4. „Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe” by Bill Bryson.
  5. „Always On” by Brian Chen
  6. „The Estate” by Isaac Beshevis Singer
  7. Rabbi Jehoshua Ozjasz Thon — „Sermons”
  8. Carlos Ruiz Zafón first novel „The Prince of Mist”
  9. John Ratey's „Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain”
  10. Michael M. Lewis's „The New New Thing”
  11. Amir D. Aczel's: „The Mystery of the Aleph: Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity”
  12. „Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” by Dan Ariely
  13. „The Essential Talmud” by Adin Steinsaltz
Wow !

I probably made this post not to boast about my long list of books read, but to remind me how bad I'm when it comes to writing these days. Shame on me :-)

Recalled in Zurich, in a beautiful Sunday morning, just before the trip to the foot of Matterhorn ...

  1. Mirek,
    It's a great list! I just reviewed my own list, so I can relate. I see that you have a book by Bill Bryson on it. I have one by him, too, that I thought you would enjoy. Maybe I should post on that one next.
    I am terribly behind, so please take heart and write when you can. Your readers are still out here.
    Cheers,
    Diane

  2. Thx Diane !

    Yes, Bill's writing is great. On this list is some of his classic books, but I have read his amazing book about Shakespeare once:
