The Ultimate Friday Question: Why doesn’t the book pile ever shrink?

A small portion of the books I’ve been reading lately. Funny how you just can’t escape that Murray’s “Hamlet…”. I remember us already reading it at Tampere University of Applied Sciences with our interaction design group back in the beginning part of 2000. To some more practically oriented and aspiring game designers / web designers / graphic artists this was perhaps a bit over the top – well, it has a good narrative doesn’t it?

Oh, how I enjoy Surface Detail by Banks! First chapter and I was totally hooked. Just found it from a market at the uni.

The third one from below, Becoming virtual: that one made me hit myself with it in the head – without it resulting in any additional understanding about the topic. Still, an interesting book about why the difference between virtual and real isn’t that true.
