reading

The following list of books and stories I am currently reading or rererading [and have recently read or reread] is more or less just for myself in order to keep track, because I seem to be unable to catch up with publishing as regular blog entries my thoughts on, and the excerpts of the books I am reading. My whole reading more or less is in one way or another connected to my bigger project, occasional exceptions granted. The hope is that one day I will be able to connect all of it in a sensible way. The list is in descending chronological order, meaning the most recent item is on top. Texts which are legally available for download are hyperlinked and marked with a .
