Reykjavík!

What I brought along to read:

1. Rodney Brook’s  Flesh and Machines: How Robots Will Change Us (Pantheon, 2002) ISBN 0-375-42079

2. My favorite and well thumbed guide to Iceland by the Lonely Planet.

3. Kortabók Road Atlas: Iceland: do not try driving on sheep paths without it!

4. The Bldg Blog Book by Geoff Manaugh

5. World Light by Iceland’s Nobel Laureate Haldor Laxness:

“Where the glacier meets the sky, the land ceases to be earthly, and the earth

becomes one with the heavens; no sorrows live there any more, and therefore

joy is not necessary; beauty alone reigns there, beyond all demands.”

Halldór Laxness

World Light

And what I picked up at the airport:

-Wired Magazine’s August issue: The Future That Never Happened

-Vanity Fair with Lady Gaga on the cover (I’m a fan of her futuristic fashions)

-and of course the latest issue of People magazine to read about Ali and Roberto
