As many of the voracious readers, I’ve got my stack of books. I almost never read one book at a time, I read more. Depending on the mood, whether I take a book for a short distance ride or longer distance. Is this similar to your actions?
Currently I’m reading
- Cybernetyczne laleczki (Cybernetic Dolls) a Polish anthology of Czech & Slovak SF. Short stories and fragments of novels. So far very different from the stereotypical science fiction. Well, hardly unthinkable after reading the psychiatry and machines Czech sf stories from 80s from Josef Nesvadba’s Minehava for the Second Time. Ah, yes, another Josef Nesvadba’s story is also in this anthology.
- Waktu Aku Sama Mika (My Time with Mika) by Indi. A based on facts book about a girl with scoliosis (Indi) and her HIV infected boyfriend (Mika). Very good! Sadly (for others to read), in Indonesian only. I bought it in Solo, when I was still living there, but I finally got the courage to read it. It’s great, I love it!
- Lectures on Russian Literature by Vladimir Nabokov. Reading Polish version of the book called “Wykłady o literaturze rosyjskiej”.

- Szczury. Przyobleka się w cienie by Jose Bianco. The original titles of those stories are: “Las ratas” (The Rats) and “Sombras suele vestir” (Shadow Play). One of very few stories by this Argentinian journalist.
- Zrób sobie raj by Mariusz Szczygieł. A book on Czechs and Czech Republic from the eyes of famous Polish Czechophile. The title means “Make your own paradise”. Actually I read a bit of the book already. I just wanted to browse and peek a bit, but I ended reading few chapters. I quickly put it away, that’s a dangerous book hooking up the reader from the first pages!
- Nie mam keine buty o ludziach między Odrą i Wisłą by Helga Hirsch. A Polish translation of “Ich habe keine Schuhe nicht”. A book on Germans, Polish and Jews living in the border region, and being a mixture of cultures and nations.
- Opowieści znad Sundu – a Polish anthology of Danish sea stories.
