Only 6 books now, digital and paper combined (just managed to finish some and not start new books):
- Peter Daanen - "De laatste stomme zondaar": historical novel about horrible prosecution of gay people in Holland in the 18th century, with tortures for 'confessions' and names, with death penalties given for 'a silent sin'.
- Denise Chong - "The girl in the picture": biography Kim Phuc, the girl running down the street with napalm burns screaming after a bomb raid in the Vietnam war
- Bernard Lietaer - "Geld en Duurzaamheid" (Money and sustainability): about how our current system of fiat money ruins both the environment, social equality and the economy and what alternative models could be, by introducing an ecosystem of different kinds of currency co-existing.
- Robert Hughes - "De fatale kust" (The fatal coast): A history of Australia as it was born out of prison camps (a thousand pages, it will take me several years to finish it).
- "Maps and Civilization"
- "An archeology of Images - Iconology and Cosmology in Iron Age and Roman Europe",
oh, there's a seventh, started this week:
- Terry Pratchett - "The science of discworld".
7 is an improvement, as I used to sometimes read 6 or more books on paper besides 6 or more books on my tablet. It's getting a bit more surveyable now (had to look that one up in the dictionary, Google translate says 'clear' for 'overzichtelijk').
