Oh I can see the books on the shelves from my living room...I thought that was just for students
After you get your "library card" (need your Swiss auslander ausweis or a passport) get the reference librabrian to show you how to reserve the books-I had to wait awhile for the Larsson ones.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I have finished 'The curious incident of the dog in the night-time' by beginning of the week. I selected it almost by random but I have been nicely surprised because of the irony and brain behind some apparently simple sentences... I have picked up ideas for the next one from some replies here... much better than the sudokus I have been doing since Wednesday to kill time in the train on my way home...

Possibly. Reading it in French but will be sure to look out for that one and how he justifies it...

Re: What are you currently reading?

I'm reading a very good and interesting book right now called The Sugar Fix. By Richard Johnson MD. It is sooooo interesting!

http://www.amazon.com/Sugar-Fix-High.../dp/1594866651

I got my book from the grocery store for only $8. It's a book about the effects of High Fructose Corn in the modern diet and how it's everywhere in just about every food now. Processed food that is. Another reason to eat fresh food as much as possible.

Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy and The Culture of the New Capitalism by William Sennet. The last great book I read was The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.

Re: What are you currently reading?

1984 - George Orwell
followed by
Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
and, in this case not a book, but a film
THX 1138, fist movie directed by George Lucas

I read - watched - in this sequence, absolutely crazy (if you fancy dystopian literature).

Re: What are you currently reading?

I just started reading Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration of the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation and Time by Michio Kaku. I am only a few pages in but already hooked. He makes theoretical physics accessible to everyone.

I've read Brave New World 3 times - it's probably my favourite fictional work.

Nope. But it's the sequel of Doors of Perception, so I'd read that first. I'm going to order them now.
