I posted something like this before, but I was on a bit of a reading tear via Kindle and thought it might be worthwhile to share some of these in case anyone might find these interesting as well. Some are related to my research (mobile media, technology, etc.), some are for other interests in the humanities (history, most specifically) and some reflect my interest in structure and architecture (and urban design). I am not going to present these in any particular order (aside from the order in which they were purchased).

Many thanks for the suggestion, Caroline! Adding it to the reading list!
