Summer Reading List – Books
It’s been a while since I last made a reading list post. Here are some of the books I’ve been reading over this summer.
DRM: Deliberately Risking Media
DRM, digital rights management, is the term used to describe attempts to control the use and ownership of digital media post-purchase. I think that this is a pretty poor practice, and will detail some reasons why.
Generational Stories: Some Thoughts
I’ve read two novels now, translated to English from Japanese, that seem to form a very strange genre, or perhaps its better described as a unique way of telling the story. The best thing I can think to call them are generational stories. Here are my thoughts.
La Belle Sauvage
Part One of the Book of Dust is a great new story from Phillip Pullman, and well worth the wait.
Origin – The latest in Dan Brown’s Langdon series. I’ve got some thoughts about this one, and overall, I think it’s worth a read if you followed the series so far, and a good story even if you haven’t.
