About mePostdoc - math.

I blog at

When not reading actual science, I read popular science books mostly. Other favorites are history and travelogues. Larry Gonick has gotta be the greatest author I have discovered recently - I am thrilled to be reading his "The Cartoon history of the Universe" books.

About my libraryBooks I own and books I have read are almost disjoint sets. I read books I borrow from a library because they have a return date, but books I buy always get moved to the back of the to-read line. I have issued myself a restraining order against bookshops (okay: with some visitation rights!), if it wasn't for the internet, I would have stopped buying books.

The books I have listed here are the books I have read, most of them in the last 2 years or so. Some are from my to-read line.

And thanks for the "interesting" comment. I have no choice but to return the favor on seeing your collection.
Hi there,
This is mostlyharmless ; you tagged my library in late December ; I just got to see it.
That's a cool library you've got; awesome to see Girish Karnad with Douglas Adams.

You mentioned Partition Novels in the India thread -- have you tried Bapsi Sidwha's "Cracking India" set in 1947 Pakistan, told through the eyes of a child who is neither Hindu nor Muslim.
Thanks for making my library feel more 'interesting'!

Happy New Year!
