Following on from Carisenda’s ‘book reading shame’, here is a list of what I got through in 2006. In 2005 I finished every Stephen Ambrose book he’d published and generally overdosed on WWII factual history a bit too much. Men of Valour is worth a read if you’re interested in getting introduced to that type of thing.

Last year I read into the history of programming, hackers and Apple a bit —and while visiting Japan I was introduced to Haruki Murakami, without a doubt the best fictional work I have read in years. His books remind me of stories you’d expect from a Studio Ghibli production.

(I know some people can read this many books in a couple of months, I tell myself, reading slowly, I’m getting more out of them …)

Anyone else got any books to recommend ?

Jamie at Front has kindly informed me that PaperJam, a Flash website I built last year at Front, has recently been featured in the new Taschen Flash Sites book.

PaperJam (based in Belfast), do some amazing design work, which you can check out at the site – Note this book does not ‘glow white’ when opened, as the photo depicts.
