The Thin Polka Line

21 May

The Pop Group are getting back together, isn’t that weird?

I’ve got one book left in my pile of novels to finish, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. When that’s finished I’ve decided to take 6 months off from novels and only read non-fiction books. So, if you’ve got a non-fiction book you think I should read let me know about it in the comments.

    Hofstadter, Douglas: Gödel, Escher, Bach
    Baxter, Stephen: Evolution (it’s a novelisation of evolution – kind of halfway between fiction and non-fiction)

      I’ve already read Evolution, really liked that one. Might give GEB another try.

    The Lord of the Rings. That’s real isn’t it?

    Actually, I’ve a massive book of the best quotations which I love for light reading, or a few easily gotten into history multi-subjects.

    But for you my friend, you could do much worse with the ol’ Leonard Maltin movie guide, or even the more popular “1001 movies to see before you die”

    PS: I love your layout

      I’ve got the 1001 movies book. Maltin is ok, but Ebert’s work is consistently better.
