Reamde

Reamde

I haven't used the camera at all this weekend. Instead I have spent a few hours reading this novel. It weighs 1.2 kilo. Number of pages is 1042. And as you can see it completely hides my face in this self-portrait. Reamde by Neal Stephenson. What are you reading?

Sometimes other things besides our cameras and blogs beckon us... and that's a good thing!

Books this big and heavy are perhaps one of the reasons that electronic book readers are becoming so popular.

Thank you for your question, but you do not want to know what I am reading this weekend, other than the newspaper and my daily photo blogs. It involves about 2,000 pages of records regarding a project for work.

Original self-portrait. Difficult to remane hidden into more than 1000 pages, but if a book really gets you it's no problem.
Actually I'm reading 'The diner' by the Dutch writer Herman Koch.

are you enjoying it?

That book could be used in a masonry project. The only thing I've read by Stephenson is Cryptonomicon, a bit of well-made fluff (a main character named Goto Dengo?). I've been reading Ingognito by David Eagleman, a neuropsychology book about research into the nature of the unconscious.

A weighty tome. Me, I am reading Ransom by David Malouf, an Australian author.

Good luck with all those pages..! I'm reading "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" by Robert Pirsig, a nice travelogue with philosophical digressions.

Nothing now, I would like to read something good. Last pageturner I read was Stone's Fall by Iain Pears.

That historical novel sounds interesting Mr Poet.

Good luck with that Dave!

That 4 hour dinner also sounds like a great read Ron, I will have check it out.

I am enjoying it CaT although it is a bit heavy!

I read Cryptonomicon when it came out, could be time for s reread soon.

The Trojan War novel will have to wait a while I think. But I will have a look at Malouf's work.

Tough that he had to write under a pseudonym as a woman to be published Babzy!

Thats a chunky read Steffe. I am about halfway the The Spies of the Balkans by Alan Furst.

Nice self-portrait.
I received a e-book reader as birthday present. And it reminded me HOW I always loved reading. Now I return to the passion after 10 (or more?) years of other habits and love every moment of it. I hope your book is interesting. Mine at a moment is S.Maugham's "Of Human Bondage". So good.
