Reading list

Not read yet:
Brain and meditation by Matthieu Ricard and Wolf Singer. Not light reading but it sounds very interesting. About how meditation actually changes  brain patterns. I have already read several books by Matthieu Ricard and I highly recommend Happiness. 
Ponyo storybook based on the Miyazaki movie (one of my all time favorites). 
The art of  My Neighbour Totoro. Making of the movie.
Partly read:
The Farm at the edge of the world by Sarah Vaughan. Gave up at 1/3. Not my cup of tea, family saga with flashbacks to  WW2. Have not even bothered to zap through to the end. Farm animal goring scenes sealed the NO NO deal for me.
Cartes Postales from Greece by Victoria Hislop. Quite a fun read. The end was a bit meeeh to my liking but the whole format of the book is really enjoyable. An anthology of short stories set in different areas of Greece. A perfect holiday book.
The Savage Altar by Asa Larsson. Some medium horror, very much in the style of Millenium. OK, quick to read, have pretty much forgotten all about it by now ;)
