About

This is just a book blog.

First off I figured I’d write down something about all the non-fiction books I’ve been reading, but it seemed a little unfair, since sometimes fiction gives you more to ponder about than anything else.

And a little about me: I am studying physics at a rather old university in a small country somewhere in Eastern Europe, and working at the same university’s museum in a more than 200-year-old observatory as a curator (who likes old technology? – I do!).

My main interests are astronomy, astrophotography, any other kind of photography, physics, history of astronomy and/or physics, and literature and crafts :). But I try to read just about anything  that sparks my interest even for a moment.

And this is me, “floating” around in the cupola at Space Expo in Noordwijk :

  1. Hi. I noticed the book Uncle Napoleon on your Goodreads list. I’d like to know what you think of it when you finish it. I lived in Tehran from 1975 to 1977 when a TV series based on the book was very popular. My students there (all adults and professionals in radio and TV) described the most rude time to make a phone call was during the hour that show was running. No one wanted to miss a minute of it.

    • Hi! Yes, I’m still working my way through it, I’ll write a review on my blog once I finish it. At the moment some parts of it remind me a little of some Monty Python sketches, as there are some just ridiculous things going on.

  2. Hello from the U.S.! Looking forward to your book reviews. I’m a meteorology major who now works in the I.T. field, but love all avenues of science. That being said, I have a hard time getting through non-fiction books so I look forward to reading your reviews. Hopefully they inspire me to finish them 🙂

    • Hi, great to hear from you! I find it takes me a different kind of mood to read non-fiction, and some do take ages for m to finish them just because I would need a whole day to just concentrate on it, because it doesn’t help if I just read a page a day 🙂
