Why do people put up "What am I reading?" posts for? Same reason they blog. To connect.
I am reading:
Maximum City - I don't have to say anything about this book. It's nice, it gets into the heart of the city and it's damn well written. You breathe Mumbai on the days you read the book.
Dune - After a while it feels like having sand on your eyes. Much like after I watched Lawrence of Arabia. Expresses the ecological concerns of the time in which it was published - 1965. David Lynch made a movie, which I think he later disowned. But many Dune fans loved it. Up there with Foundation, I, Robot and Blade Runner. Or Lord of the Rings even.
