Oh man, I've got some awesome books to read at the moment. I can't decide which one to start first. Have you read any of them?
Buckminster Fuller's Universe by Norman Cousins
The City of Tomorrow and It's Planning by Le Corbusier
End of Alice by AM Homes
Mr Vertigo by Paul Auster
The Future of Life by Edward Wilson
And I'm browsing volume 1 of Doraemon too :D
I'm thinking End of Alice as I'm in the frame of mind for something a little grim and fictional but I dunno, not heard anyone's reviews of this in real life...
