Backlog ...

Here is the list of books that I read recently but had no time or power to review:

  1. „Blindsight” by Peter Watts
  2. „All Things Shining: Reading the Western Classics to Find Meaning in a Secular Age” by Hubert Dreyfus and Sean Kelly
  3. „The Most Human Human” by Brian Christian
  4. „Da Vinci Ghost” by Toby Lester
  5. „Buddhist Meditation for Beginners” by Jack Kornfield
  6. „Buddhism for Busy People” by David Michie
  7. „True Love” by Thich Nahn Hahn
  8. „The Mind and the Brain” by Jeffrey M. Schwartz & Sharon Bogley
  9. „The Cult of the Amateur” by Andrew Keen
  10. „The Information” by James Gleick
  11. „Here Comes Everybody” by Clay Shirky
and now I'm reading "A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens :-)
Honestly, I will not be able to review all of them :-(, but I will certainly do it for „Blindsight”, „All Things Shinging”, „The Mind and the Brain” and „The Information” — they are the books of utmost importance ....
