Read in Nov 2010

Several nice finds in Nov.
  • Harry Turtledove's WWII historical fiction piece, "Man with the Iron Heart".
  • Leslie Scott's "About Jenga" (bet you didn't know Jenga was a recent invention).
  • "My Jakarta", a collection of interviews of Indonesians from all walks of life. I found the accounts fascinating.
  • "Runaways" graphic novel series, by Brian K. Vaughan (writer). Turns an ordinary idea on its head.
I'll probably blog about some of them in details.

    Hi, would you be doing any "good reads" for the ebooks from NLB?

  2. Good question! I don't plan to, but let me think about it. I don't deliberately read eBooks NOT that I'm anti-eBooks/ pro-Books. It's because I don't own a suitable mobile device for reading eBooks. I could download eBooks to read on my laptop, but I tend to read during my commute to and from work. Can't read off the laptop on the train :)

    nah, it's ok. Just that I was wondering if there are any other interesting reads other than most of the john grisham books i find in NLB's ebooks selection.
