The Shankhill Butchers - A Case Study of Mass Murder by Martin Dillon

Great book, well researched and absolutely terrifying. Reading it will make me think twice about walking home as I sometimes pass a bar used by the killers near Sandy Row.


Ho Chi Minh - A Life by William Duiker

Looks really good, it's huge though.

Konstantin Fedin, 'Cities and Years'
M.R. James, 'Collected Ghost Stories'
Roland Barthes, 'Image, Music, Text'

I usually read several books at the same time. Well... not exactly at the same time, but one after the other... at the same time. If you see what I mean. Um... yes. :hmm:

A Modern History of the Kurds, David McDowall. I'm not reading this one back to back, it's too heavy and deep for that. But I'm reading individual chapters getting a feel for the constant internecine fighting between Kurds and the post-GW1 Kurdish statelets.

The Making of Modern Turkey, Feroz Ahmad. Fairly easy reading, nice and slim so I'm not learning all that much really. I should have paid more attention to the chapters on the coup decades.

I usually read to at a time, I get bored reading one at a time. :hmm:
That's just me. Sorry, not reading any books in English currently.

"Mörkret i människan" - Sörlin

It makes me depressed. :(

"Universum I Ett Nötskal" - Hawking (Swedish trans.)

I honestly thought the thread was about telling everyone what you are currently engrossed in. Not simply picking up last semester's course material off the floor and typing in the titles.

That wasn't for you, fellow feline.

It was mainaly for Dumbteen's A Modern History of the Kurds.

You can just imagine him sitting on a lawnchair with a gin and tonic reading under the shade of a eucalyptus tree somewhere in the Caribbean.

"Ah... A Modern History of the Kurds. A little escapism from the depressing tropical paradise around me."

That doesn't sound like a uni class. At least none that I've read about. I like to read history books sometimes... Fiction does get so predictable once you get to a point. I like to broaden my horizons by non-fiction books... then take a break with some sci-fi or something.
