Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

A pile of books

Published: Friday 2004-03-05.

Several people have posted lists of unread books that have piled up. Since Norwegian TV showed Fahrenheit 451 on Wednesday, I thought it was fitting to post my list here.

I normally don’t have my books in a pile by my bed, mostly because my bedside table is mostly occupied by a VT100 compatible terminal, which is connected to one of my Linux machines by a 10 metre null modem cable, but I gathered them for the occasion. The unread things that do pile up are otherwise mostly computer magazines, comic books and other periodicals from different sources.

Furthest away you can catch a glimpse of the book I’m currently reading, “Taliban” by Ahmed Rashid. The unread books are currently:

In addition to that, I have a pile of yet-to-watch DVDs, currently consisting of the final episode of V, one and a half season of Star Trek:Deep Space Nine, the end of season four of Futurama, plus the bonus materials on several of my latest buys.

Update: Drats, I missed a book, mostly because i don’t keep them in one pile: ”Absolution Gap” by Alastair Reynolds
