OpenFest 2006 - Share the Freedom

Must... Keep... Away... From... Bookstores!

Yep, I've done it again. After Vasil helped me ruin my sleep by passing me a copy of the Cryptonomicon (the dead-tree edition, of course), and after I found out that I've reread my whole pterry collection over the last few months, I did a really, really stupid thing today: up and walked into a Knigomania bookstore[1], fully conscious and of my own free will.

...skip twenty minutes that flew by in a blur of hardcovers, paperbacks, calendars, art and photography collections and the like...

So, here's the tally:

[1] For our foreign readers, Knigomania is a chain of bookstores in Bulgaria largely known for carrying all manners of foreign literature - mainly English and Russian, but also French, German, Spanish, and more. The name "Knigomania" would translate to "Book-mania"... or something.

There's no escape, nothing can save you :) After you're done with Quicksilver, expect "The confusion" and "The system of the world" :)
(you know the phrase "I'll sleep when I'm dead", don't you?:) )

Know it?! I've *coined* it, man!

Oh, and before you mention that Bon Jovi character, yeah, yeah, I'll have to get 'round to collecting my royalties some day... :P

Ah yes, very good reading material. Have you read his other books? Diamond Age and Snowcrash are especially good, and Zodiac is also a pretty good read :)
