What We Read When We Read

Filed under: reading — jrice @ 4:28 pm

Another post about reading habits for those keeping score at home:

  • Digital Ground – Malcolm McCullogh. Architecture and digitality (thinking about space…) in a way less romantic and a bit more sophisticated than Mitchell. Very useful for my work right now.
  • Hicksville – Dylan Horrocks. Finished this one the other day. Like Seth’s Wimbledon Green, a graphic novel which attempts a meta-reflection about the comic industry’s foundations and existence. This one takes place in New Zealand.
  • A New Philosophy of Society: Assemblage Theory and Social Complexity – Manuel DeLanda. I’m about to read this. So no insightful comments yet.
  • Desolation Jones #7 and #8. Warren Ellis, the hardest working man in comics. The book’s characters have lost all defining traits. They are as murky as the world they live in.
  • Flatbreads and Flavors – Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid. I flip through it from time to time. I love their stories about bread. And it is my turn to host the dinner party group this month. The theme I’ve chosen, though, is prison food. Not much place there for olive ladder bread or apricot and almond bread.
